The village of Maywood’s Municipal Officers Electoral Board will hold a hearing on Dec. 10, 1 p.m., at 125 S. 5th Ave. in Maywood, to discuss an objection filed by John Olsen against the Maywood Visionary Party.

The party’s members, Antonette Dorris and Steven R. Smiley, are each running on the Maywood Visionary Party ticket for three open trustee seats in the upcoming April 2, 2019 election.

The Maywood Visionary Party is one of two established parties that filed to run in next year’s local election. So far, at least nine candidates have announced intentions to run in next year’s race.

According to Village Clerk Viola Mims, new political parties and independent candidates looking to run in April have from Dec. 10 until Dec. 17 to file nominating petitions. Monday, Dec. 24, is the last day to file objections to those nominating petitions. VFP
