Primary & General Consolidated Elections in Illinois: The election day for the consolidated election is the first Tuesday in April of each odd year, unless that day is during Passover, in which case the election is the first Tuesday after Passover. Its associated consolidated primary election is held on the preceding last Tuesday in February. The consolidated election was established in 1982; before this, many local government held separate elections on unrelated days at unrelated places.
The upcoming 2023 Consolidated Election is Tuesday, April 4th. The Aurora Public Library District Board of Library Trustees has three write-in candidates for two open positions in the April 4th Consolidated Election. Kane and DuPage County both keep lists of Write-In-Candidates:
Similar to Kane County, in order to be a write-in candidate, a notarized Declaration of Intent to Be a Write-In Candidate must have been filed with the DuPage County Election Division no later than 61 days prior to the election. Write-in candidate names will not appear on the ballot; the DuPage County Clerk Election Division maintains the Write-In Candidate Listings.
Voters may only write-in candidates who have already filed a Declaration of Intent to be a Write-In Candidate 61 days prior to the election. Nonetheless, write-in candidate names will not appear on the ballot, only the option to write-in. The Kane County Clerk's Office keeps an up-to-date Write-In Candidate List for voters. A candidate who is defeated for nomination is not allowed to file a Declation of Intent to be a Write-In Candidate.
*Note that Kendall or Will Counties do not provide lists of write-in candidates.
