Commissioner Candidates Must File Nominating Petitions

Voters will be electing three Village Council Commissioners in the Consolidated Election on April 9, 2013. Downers Grove residents wishing to run for the office of Commissioner must file their Statements of Candidacy and nominating petitions, now available from the Village Clerk's office.

Both forms must be filed with the Village Clerk between November 19 and 26, 2012, at Village Hall, 801 Burlington Avenue. The office hours are 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

  • If more than 12 persons file for the position of Commissioner, the DuPage County Election Commission will conduct a Consolidated Primary Election on February 26, 2013.
  • Signature requirements for nominating petitions must be equal to at least 1% of the total vote cast for mayor at the last preceding mayoral election, or 50 signatures.


For further information on election law, candidates should consult their own attorneys. For information on election procedures, candidates should contact the DuPage County Election Commission at (630) 407-5600.
