Illinois is one of 21 states with a mixed primary system. Voters do not have to register with a party, but they do have to choose, publicly, which party's ballot they will vote on at the primary election.
Heading into the election the incumbent is Adam Kinzinger (R), who was first elected in 2010. Prior to redistricting due to the 2010 census, he served as the representative of Illinois' 11th congressional district.
After the 2010 redistricting process, the 16th District covers all of Boone, Bureau, Grundy, Iroquois, LaSalle, Lee, Livingston, Ogle, Putnam counties and parts of DeKalb, Ford, Stark, Will and Winnebago counties.
Note: Prior to the signature filing deadline, candidates will be added when Ballotpedia writers come across declared candidates.
