GENEVA –  Geoffrey Carreiro has filed as a write-in candidate for Geneva Township clerk in the April 9 consolidated election.

A spokeswoman for the Kane County Clerk’s Office confirmed Carreiro filed his intent late last week.

The three-member Geneva Township Electoral Board had tossed Carreiro off the ballot, upholding a challenge to his nominating petitions filed by incumbent Trustee Robert Kovacs.

The board found he did not have enough valid signatures on his nominating petitions to stay on the ballot. Carreiro would have been the only candidate on the ballot for clerk.

Candidates can file as write-ins until 4:30 p.m. Feb. 7.
