No new candidates filed for the Aurora mayoral or aldermanic seats Tuesday, said Aurora Election Commission Director Linda Fechner. About a dozen candidates have filed for the seven open aldermanic seats and mayoral spot so far.

Fechner said the Election Commission will start accepting petitions for the 3rd Ward aldermanic spot Wednesday . Those candidates must collect between 21 and 71 signatures on their petitions.

Alderman Stephanie Kifowit, who on Nov. 6 won election to the Illinois House, resigned from her 3rd Ward post Tuesday night, triggering an election for her seat.
