Heading into the election the incumbent is Jesse Jackson Jr. (D), who was first elected in 1994.
Illinois' 2nd Congressional District is based in Cook, Will and Kankakee counties and includes the south suburbs of Chicago, extending into Will County. It also includes the city's far southeast side.
Note: Prior to the signature filing deadline, candidates will be added when Ballotpedia writers come across declared candidates.
