2016 Election Petitions

As a service to Republicans candidates who need nominating petition signatures to run for offices representing citizens of Tazewell County, we are providing blank nominating petitions for anyone who wishes to circulate those petitions.



  1. Circulators MUST be 18 years of age or older and citizens of the United States.
  2. All signers, but NOT circulators, MUST be registered to vote at the address of their residence in the State of Illinois.
  3. Circulators MAY NOT circulate petitions for more than one political party.
  4. Circulators MAY 8sign only one petition they circulate for each candidate.
  5. Circulators MUST personally appear and sign the circulator’s oath and a notary seal stamped on the petition by a notary public licensed in Illinois. Most banks and public libraries will notarize a petition free of charge.
  6. Petitions with fewer than ten (10) voter signatures count. If you are not able to fill the petition, you should still send in the partially filled petition. Each signature counts towards the required amount.
  7. Blank spaces in the circulator’s affidavit SHOULD be completed with the exception of the page number. DO NOT NUMBER THE PETITION SHEETS.

Unless otherwise noted in the candidate's instructions, the original copy of notarized petition should be mailed or delivered to:

Tazewell County Republican Central Committee
1000 Court Street
Pekin, IL 61554
