You will find candidate profiles; recorded video messages* from candidates, searchable by race or candidate; responses to candidate questionnaires; a map of Illinois searchable by Congressional district; and links to ongoing political coverage from WTTW News. This Voter Guide was produced with help from the League of Women Voters of Cook County. Find your polling location for voting on election day.

*Candidates were given two minutes to tell voters where they stand on the issues, why they feel they are best qualified and what they intend to do if elected or reelected. The messages were recorded via Zoom at no cost to the candidates.
