Application by appellant independent candidates for judicial office in Illinois for stay, pending this Court's disposition of appeal, of Illinois Supreme Court's judgment reversing Circuit Court's order enjoining appellee State Board of Elections Commissioners from conducting a lottery to assign ballot positions in accordance with Board regulation prescribing lottery system for breaking ties resulting from simultaneous filing of petitions for nomination to elective office, is denied, where there is insufficient indication of unfairness or irreparable injury and (because the questions presented by the appeal are capable of repetition) no suggestion that the forthcoming election will moot the case.
