According to state law, candidates are considered to have filed simultaneously if they were standing in line to file nominating paperwork at the Kane County Clerk’s Office prior to 8:30 a.m. on the first day of the filing period, or if they filed paperwork in the last hour of the last day of the filing period.

- County Board District 17: Janice Bennett, Deborah Allan.
- County Board District 19: Thomas Gibbons, John (Jack) Shales. Mohammad “Mo” Iqbal is also on the ballot but was not involved in the lottery.
