Election Contests and Ballot Measures

March 20, 2012 Illinois Democratic General Primary

Illinois

Note: Candidate pictures are the most current we have on file. Because this is a past election, they may not show a candidate’s likeness at the time of the election. Likewise, some of the links to websites, emails, and social media may be broken.

Due to our limited resources we are unable to cover office contests for the delegates and alternate delegates for each of the 18 congressional districts to the national nominating convention; the superintendents of schools contests; the trustees of the sanitary districts contests; and judicial contests.
