Former President Donald Trump will remain on the Illinois ballot after the State Board of Elections dismissed a challenge alleging he was ineligible because of his challenging the results of 2020 election.
The elections board, in a bipartisan 7-1 vote, said it did not have the jurisdiction to remove Trump from the ballot.
A hearing officer had earlier recommended Trump’s name be removed.
The primary in Illinois is March 19. The General Election is Nov. 5.
