Illinois has a mixed-hybrid primary system. Voters can change parties each year but must declare a party affiliation at the polls. Depending on which party is chosen, the voter will then be counted as registered for that party. Voters may change party affiliation at polls or caucus.
Heading into the election the incumbent is John Shimkus (R), who was first elected in 2002. Prior to redistricting due to the 2010 census, he served as the representative of Illinois' 19th congressional district.
Illinois' 15th Congressional District is located in eastern Illinois. It includes Johnson, Pope, Hardin, Gallatin, Saline, Hamilton, White, Wayne, Edwards, Wabash, Marion, Washington, Clinton, Madison, Bond, Gayette, Clay, Effingham, Shelby, Jasper, Cumberland, Crawford, Lawrence, Richland, Clark, Coles, Edgar, Douglas, Moultrie, Vermillion, Champaign and Ford counties.
