The Consolidated Election won’t be held until April of 2019 but the City of Fairbury says that as of Tuesday election petitions can begin circulating.
Petitions for Municipal Independent candidates will need a minimum of 50 signatures with the maximum set at 100 and candidates must live in the ward he or she is running for.
The first day for filing nominations is December 10.
