March 2018 referenda deadlines nearing

There is less than three months remaining for school districts to propose funding questions to voters in the primary elections next March.

Jan. 2, 2018 is the last day for school boards to adopt a resolution placing public policy questions on the ballot in March 20, 2018, which is the next regularly scheduled election date (10 ILCS 5/28-2). School districts have until Jan. 11, 2018 for the board secretary to certify plans for placing school finance referendums on the ballot (10 ILCS 5/28-5).

The next regularly scheduled election after March in 2018 will be the general election on Nov. 6.
