Election details

Redistricting

With the 2020 United States census, all 59 Legislative Districts and the corresponding 118 Representative Districts will be redrawn to accommodate the new population data. As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the United States Census Bureau stated that the necessary data for redistricting won't be available until September 2021.[3] The Illinois Constitution states that:

"In the year following each Federal decennial census year, the General Assembly by law shall redistrict the Legislative Districts and the Representative Districts. If no redistricting plan becomes effective by June 30 of that year, a Legislative Redistricting Commission shall be constituted not later than July 10. The Commission shall consist of eight members, no more than four of whom shall be members of the same political party."[4]
— Illinois Constitution Article IV Section 3b

With the possibility of this commission and the state constitution not specifying what population data to use in redistricting, Illinois Democrats have gone ahead and started the redistricting process. Each committee has not yet stated what population data will be used, but the Chicago Tribune has speculated the use of "estimates from the federal census’ American Community Survey or private vendor data."[5]
