|U.S. House, Illinois, District 13|
During the 2014 elections, the Constitution Party, Green Party, Libertarian Party and Lincoln Liberty Party tried to gain ballot access in the Illinois general election. To do so, minor parties had to collect signatures on petitions in the districts their candidates seek to represent. For state executive office or U.S. Senate office, minor parties must collect 25,000 signatures. For district offices, minor parties must collect signatures equal in number to five percent of those who voted for the office sought in the last general election. For district offices, the number of signatures required can range from close to 1,000 to over 15,000. Such signature requirements mean minor parties and their candidates spend much of their time trying to collect signatures rather than raise money or campaign, as their Republican and Democratic counterparts do. As of April 2014, Republican U.S. House member Rodney Davis, representative of the 13th Congressional District, had raised $951,904. Ann Callis, Davis's Democratic challenger for the district, had raised $513,898. Josh Dill, a Lincoln Liberty Party hopeful for the district, had yet to raise any money. He tried to collect enough signatures before the June 23, 2014 minor party filing deadline.
