The Democratic Party of Illinois still has the opportunity to appoint candidates for vacant positions, including the 48th House District, according to the DuPage County Board of Elections.
No candidates have been announced at this time. Democratic Party of Illinois spokesman Steve Brown said they will begin the process of evaluating where candidates did not file, and whether there is a Democratic politician who may be qualified for these seats.
Brown said they typically solicit potential candidates through party chairmen at the county level. However, it is not is not always guaranteed that someone will step forward.
"Sometimes, when a certain area leans far Democratically or otherwise, it's hard to even find a candidate for the position," said Brown.
Brown said any nominations will need to be filed with the Illinois State Board of Elections.
