Impact of redistricting

See also: Redistricting in Illinois

Between 2000-2010, Illinois saw a large number of citizens move from the Democratic stronghold of Chicago to the more Republican friendly suburbs. With Democrats in charge of the legislature and governorship, however, they were able to draw maps beneficial to their party. This resulted in a number of districts that begin in Chicago and wind out into the suburbs like the spokes in a wheel. Democrats released their plan with little data and were criticized from all sides. It pitted over a dozen Republicans incumbents against one another and was quickly passed and signed into law. Republicans challenged the map in court but saw the case thrown out.

These tables show the old state House districts with the most and least population following the 2010 census - thus the ones that most needed to be changed. The target population for new districts was 108,734.[3]
