Qualifications

Article IV of the Illinois Constitution states: To be eligible to serve as a member of the General Assembly, a person must be a United States citizen, at least 21 years old, and for the two years preceding his election or appointment a resident of the district which he is to represent.

Map of Illinois Senate Districts with less than 10% party registration differential before and after the 2010 redistricting. A total of 8 legislative districts meet the criteria before and after 2010.

Impact of redistricting

See also: Redistricting in Illinois

Between 2000-2010, Illinois saw a large number of citizens move from the Democratic stronghold of Chicago to the more Republican friendly suburbs. With Democrats in charge of the legislature and governorship, however, they were able to draw maps beneficial to their party. This resulted in a number of districts that begin in Chicago and wind out into the suburbs like the spokes in a wheel. Democrats released their plan with little data and were criticized from all sides. The map, which Republicans said would guarantee a GOP minority for the next decade, was quickly passed and signed into law. Republicans challenged the map in court but saw the case thrown out.

These tables show the old state Senate districts with the most and least population following the 2010 census - thus the ones that most needed to be changed. The target population for new districts was 217,468.[3]

Most populated Senate Districts Incumbent 2010 Population
42 (Plainfield) Linda Holmes (D) 337,625
25 (Aurora) Chris Lauzen (R) 332,979
32 (Crystal Lake) Pamela Althoff (R) 254,707
43 (Crest Hill) Arthur Wilhelmi (D) 252,892
41 (Lemont) Christine Radogno (R) 250,942
Least Populated Senate Districts Incumbent 2010 Population
20 (Chicago) Iris Martinez (D) 187,878
7 (Chicago) Heather Steans (D) 188,147
17 (Chicago) Donne Trotter (D) 189,200
3 (Chicago) Mattie Hunter (D) 189,367
14 (Chicago) Emil Jones (D) 190,871

In Illinois, there were eight state senate districts where the partisan registration of Democratic and Republican voters was less than 10 percentage points apart. These districts would be considered "competitive" when looked at strictly with respect to vote party affiliation. The eight districts in Illinois were Districts 27, 31, 34, 38, 47, 49, 52 and 54.
