nominating petitions challenges

You can check which nominating petitions have been challenged at the websites of the Illinois State Board of Elections and the Cook County Clerk.

Challenges can be for insufficient signatures or for some technicality. Many people who say they are registered aren't. And sometimes the signature provided doesn't match the one on file.
