Illinois Voters File Objections to Strike Biden From Primary Ballot

Both state and federal law bar President Biden from appearing on the state’s ballot, according to petitioners.

Samantha Flom  |  1/13/2024

A pair of objections filed with the Illinois State Board of Elections seek to remove President Joe Biden from the state’s Democratic presidential primary ballot.

The petitions, both filed on Jan. 12, hold that the president is legally ineligible to appear on the state’s ballot under state and federal law.

The first objection argues that President Biden violated Illinois election law when he opted to have his statement of candidacy notarized by David E. Kalbaugh, the White House executive clerk.

“Biden’s Statement of Candidacy was notarized by David E. Kalbaugh, a Notary Public commissioned in the District of Columbia,” wrote petitioners Beth Findley Smith and Timothy Conrad, both Illinois voters.

But under Illinois law, a candidate’s statement of candidacy “shall be subscribed and sworn to by such candidate before some officer authorized to take acknowledgments of deeds in this State.”  .  .  .

If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

The second objection cites Section 3 of Amendment XIV, the same one Democrats are using to force  Trump off the ballot.  This will force Biden to adopt the same defense Trump is using.
