Many are excited that the presidential election is less than three weeks away, but the campaign cycle for the next election has already begun.

Nominating petition forms for the April 9, 2013 election are already available for school board, community college board and park board.

Those seeking petitions for school board should go to their school district office.  In Effingham Unit 40, three seats will be filled in the April election.  Those are currently held by Brian Wick, Galen Altman and Brad Meinhart. 

The Unit 40 board office is located on South Banker in Effingham.

Two seats will be filled in the Effingham Park Board election in April.  Those seats are now filled by Dr. Mike Sehy and Dennis Carie.  Petitions are available at the Park District office in the Ron Diehl Center at Hendelmeyer Park on South 4th in Effingham.

There will also be seats available on the Lake Land College Board of Trustees.

While petitions can now be circulated, the filing period will not begin until Monday, December 17 and will continue through 5pm on Christmas Eve, December 24.
