A new Illinois law extends the deadline for some candidates to file election petitions from 5 p.m. Dec. 24 to 5 p.m. Dec. 26.

The law, signed by Gov. Pat Quinn on Sunday, extends the deadline for candidate petitions April 2013 elections, according to news releases from the state and Illinois Municipal League.

The new deadline affects candidates filing for positions in local school districts, community college districts and library, park and fire districts, said John Brown Rock Island County's chief deputy county clerk.

In municipal elections, it only affects candidates who intend to run as independents. The deadline for municipal candidates in partisan elections was last week.
