About the Electoral Board

The Cook County Officer’s Electoral Board is comprised of designees of the Cook County Clerk, the State’s Attorney, and the Clerk of the Circuit Court.  The Board hears objections to candidacies and petitions of public policy questions for submission on the ballot. The vast majority of these matters asks whether the nomination papers or petitions of a candidate for public office are legally valid to appear on the ballot.
