17 March 2015: Congressman Aaron Jon Schock (Republican) resigned. "Today, I am announcing my resignation as a Member of the United States House of Representatives effective March 31 ... the constant questions over the last six weeks have proven a great distraction that has made it too difficult for me to serve the people of the 18th District with the high standards that they deserve ...". The distraction is a House Office of Congressional Ethics investigation regarding ethics and questionable expenses.
Governor Bruce Rauner (Republican) will call a special election within 5 days of the Congressman's 31 March resignation. The special election must occur within 115 days (circa the end of July).
On 1 April 2015, per state law, Governor Bruce Rauner (Republican) called a Special Primary for Monday 8 June 2015 and a Special Election for Friday 24 July 2015 to fill the vacant seat of Congressman Aaron Jon Schock (Republican) who resigned on 31 March. The election dates do not allow enough time for overseas ballots to be counted so these dates are likely to change.
6 April 2015: The U.S. Department of Justice and Illinois agreed to a Tuesday 7 July 2015 Special Primary and a Thursday 10 September 2015 Special Election.
14 April 2015: A Federal consent decree for the dates above is signed.
10 September 2015: state Senator Darin McKay LaHood (Republican) is elected in a Special Election.

Candidates running under the banner of more than one party are counted towards each party's total. A candidate who has lost a primary or is apparently no longer a candidate is not counted.

Notes

Candidates for office appear on this page in italics where 'The Green Papers' does not yet have independent confirmation from a legal election authority that the person has been officially certified to appear on the ballot.

"Apparently not a candidate" indicates that someone we once listed as a candidate for an elective office will not, in fact, be running for that office (primarily because said candidate is not listed on an official ballot provided by a jurisdiction's election authorities, where that candidate has not previously withdrawn his/her candidacy or otherwise indicated no longer [or even ever] being a candidate for that office).

Primary dates marked "presumably" and polling times marked "reportedly" are based on unofficial or estimated data (especially as regards local variations from a jurisdictionwide statutory and/or regulatory standard) and are, thereby, subject to change.

"FEC" indicates the Federal Election Commission (FEC) Campaign Finance Summary.

When available, we post each candidate's FEC identification number, the date of their most recently filed Report of Receipts and Disbursements, their "Tot" [Total Receipts (contributions received or what came in: FEC Form 3, Line 16, Column B)] and their "Dsb" [Total Disbursements (expenditures or what was spent: FEC Form 3, Line 23, Column B)]. A link is provided to the Federal Election Commission's Summary Report for those who might wish to explore the details.

If a candidate raises or spends $5,000 or less, he or she is not subject to FEC reporting requirements.
