The DeKalb city clerk announced candidate petitions for the April 6 consolidated election will be accepted later this month at City Hall, 164 E. Lincoln Highway, under COVID-19-related guidelines.
City Hall will be open for filing from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. from Dec. 14 to 21, excluding weekends, during the filing period, according to a news release sent Friday from DeKalb City Clerk Lynn Fazekas. The election includes races for 2nd, 4th and 6th Ward aldermen, city clerk and mayor.
City staff will not notarize forms, and forms must be notarized before they are filed, according to the release.
Candidates are asked to use the Second Street entrance to City Hall and to wear a mask covering their nose and mouth while in the building. The city reserves the right to limit entry into the building for social distancing purposes.
Outside of the first and last days of filing, city clerk officials are requesting candidates and others to make an appointment with the city clerk for election business purposes, including filing petitions and objections, and to opt whenever possible for email communications and electronically delivered copies of petitions, according to the release.
For information or to make an appointment, contact Fazekas at 815-756-3617 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
