Illinois' 1st congressional district elections, 2014
November 4, 2014
Bobby L. Rush
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 Bobby L. Rush (D), who was first elected in 1992.
Illinois' 1st congressional district is based in Cook County and includes much of the South Side of Chicago, extending into the city's southwest suburbs until reaching the border of Will County and covers 97.84 square miles, making it one of the 40 smallest districts in the U.S.
Note: Prior to the signature filing deadline, candidates will be added when Ballotpedia writers come across declared candidates. If you see a name of a candidate who is missing, please email us and we will add that name. As the election draws closer, more information will be added to this page.
