School Board Elections

Prospective school board candidates may visit the Illinois State Board of Elections website at www.elections.il.gov for information regarding School Board Elections.

Petitions must be filed with the Cook County Clerk's Office. Please contact The Cook County Clerk's Office at (312) 603-1127 for further election-related information. The League of Women Voters of Wilmette also offers additional information for voters and potential candidates. For more information, please click here.
