Tuesday, March 9, 2021 is the deadline for submitting petitions for municipal office vacancies. Since there are so many who want to say local government should be eliminated because nobody wants to serve, it is again time to prove them wrong. Township offices only need 10 signatures of registered voters in the same party to qualify. Make sure there is a petition filed for the office of anyone whose term is expiring at the end of 2021. Petitions can be found and filed at your county Board of Elections.
