David Gill, an independent candidate for Illinois' 13th Congressional District seat currently held by Republican Congressman Rodney Davis, has been removed from the ballot by the State Board of Elections.
A panel voted 4-2 on Monday that sustained an objection to David Gill's petitions because he did not have enough valid signatures needed by an independent.
Independent candidates need 10,754 signatures to make the ballot, while Democrats and Republicans need around 735 signatures.
Gill had previously run for Congress four times as a Democrat.
