TOBIN FOR GOVERNOR v. ILLINOIS STATE BD. OF ELECTIONS, 00-3097

Unlike a statutory provision that would continue to operate after the election, a decision by a board of elections regarding whether a person or party has acquired enough petition signatures to warrant inclusion on the ballot is a one-time decision that is not capable of repetition.
