Those intending to run for a local race in the spring will now have more time to file their election packets.
On Dec. 2, Gov. Pat Quinn approved a senate bill that extends the last day to file packets for the consolidated spring election to Dec. 26, according to a village of Algonquin news release.
Local races up for election include village board trustee positions and village president and village clerk seats in Algonquin and Lake in the Hills.
All packets must be dropped off during normal business hours between Dec. 17 and Dec. 26 either at Lake in the Hills Village Hall, 600 Harvest Gate, for LITH races or at the Algonquin Village Hall, 2200 Harnish Drive in Algonquin, for village of Algonquin seats.
