Kennedy, Kahn ruled off ballot by Electoral Board

The Cook County Electoral Board has ordered two more judicial candidates removed from the March 20 primary ballot, according to information posted this afternoon on the Cook County Clerk's website.

Judge Kathleen G. Kennedy had filed for the Coleman vacancy on the Illinois Appellate Court, but (pending any possible appeal) the Electoral Board's action leaves Justice Nathaniel Roosevelt Howse, Jr. as the only remaining candidate in that race.

The crowded race for the Delgado vacancy in the 6th Judicial Subcircuit is a little less crowded at present, now that the Electoral Board has ruled candidate Glenn J. Kahn off the ballot.

Pending any possible appeal, Kahn would be the second candidate (out of an original field of nine) removed in this race. Another withdrew. One of the objections lodged against 6th Subcircuit candidate Beatriz Santiago has been resolved in her favor; another objection remains pending, according to the Cook County Clerk's website.

So right now three of the six AC vacancies have an unopposed candidate and no contest. And the other three have fourteen candidates among them. Ugh.
