The Illinois Secretary of State election of 2010 was held on November 2, 2010. Winning 69.9% of the vote, Democratic incumbent Jesse White easily defeated two challengers: Republican Robert Enriquez and Libertarian Josh Hanson.

Neither White nor Enriquez was opposed in the primary election on February 2, and Hanson did not appear on the ballot. There was another third-party candidate, Adrian Frost (Green Party) in the primary election, but the 0.33% of the vote he won was not enough to earn a spot on the ballot in the November general election.
