Tio Hardiman gets mixed ballot news in hearing recommendation; Running mate Brunell Donald not legally registered to vote Hardiman gets mixed ballot news in recommendation
January 14, 2014 (SPRINGFIELD, Ill.) -- A hearing officer recommends that the Democratic challenger to Gov. Pat Quinn should stay on the ballot - but not his running mate.
Hearing officer Barbara Goodman said Tuesday that Tio Hardiman submitted enough signatures to get on the March ballot. But his candidate for lieutenant governor - Brunell Donald - was not legally registered to vote.
Hardiman says Donald moved and did not immediately register at the new address.
The State Board of Elections could decide the issue Thursday after another recommendation from the staff attorney.
Complicating matters is that for the first time, governor and lieutenant governor candidates appear on the ballot together.
Executive Director Rupert Borgsmiller says it's likely courts will decide the matter.
