Geneva Township clerk hopeful faces petition challenge
GENEVA – The Geneva Township Electoral Board scheduled a hearing for 10 a.m. today at the township office, 400 Wheeler Drive, Geneva, to hear an objection to the nominating petitions of a candidate for clerk.
Township Trustee Robert Kovacs filed an objection to the petitions of Geoffrey M. Carreiro. Kovacs’ objection claims 19 of the signatures are those of people who are not registered to vote or whose names were printed instead of written as a signature.
Carreiro’s petition required the signatures of 156 registered voters. He collected 162 signatures. If the electoral board finds that 19 are not valid, it would reduce the number of valid signatures to 143, which is 13 fewer than required to get on the ballot.
