Election Dates are Online

Last year, Union County Clerk Joanne Rajoppi had her bright yellow brochure of election dates out early, due to the presidential primary. So far, the 2009 dates are not posted on her web site.
However, the state Division of Elections has the relevant dates, although they are deep inside a 128-page document that can be seen online here. Never mind the information on fire districts and nonpartisan municipal elections, Plainfielders are focusing on the school board contest and the June primary.
Petitions are now available for the school board election and must be returned by March 2. Anyone who objects to a candidate's petition must say so by March 6. The last day to register to vote in the school board election is March 31 and the election is April 21.
By April 6, we will know who the Regular Democratic Organization is putting up for the mayoral and Fourth Ward seats, as well as any challengers. More details later on the June 2 primary.
Some interesting names are already being floated for the primary, but as always it remains to be seen who will actually run. Meanwhile, the talk certainly fuels one of Plainfield's top indoor sports, political speculation.
