Individuals who are still debating whether to run for a municipal, park district or library district seat now have two more days to mull over their decision.
Originally, the filing period for those seats was to run from next Monday through the end of the day on Monday, Dec. 23.
But Vandalia City Clerk Peggy Bowen told the city council last week that city clerks throughout Illinois successfully lobbied to have the final filing date changed.
Now, potential candidates have until the end of the day on Dec. 26 to file their petitions.
