Chicago Cityscape has added the newly adopted maps for the Illinois House, the Illinois Senate, the Illinois Appellate/Supreme Court, and the Cook County Board of Review. Maps of the five Illinois Appellate/Supreme Court districts and the three Cook County Board of Review districts are also brand new to the database. Our Place Snapshot Explorer now has 39,562 maps.
All four Place Snapshot types are effective immediately (they were signed by Governor Pritzker last week) and will be utilized in the 2022 elections.
It’s easy to look up any address in Illinois and see what the new and old districts are, with Address Snapshot.
For example, the residents of the 2600 block of W Cullerton St in Chicago’s South Lawndale community area will be voting in new Illinois House and Illinois Senate races.
And the residents of the Holiday Lane Condos in Des Plaines are “moving” from the Cook County Board of Review’s 1st District to the 2nd District.
Look up your address, and on the resulting Address Snapshot report, scroll down to Surrounding Places. In the search field above the table, type in “redistricting” to see the old and potentially new districts, or click the new “Redistricted areas” filter.
Note that the Chicago City Council is undergoing a remap currently, and may be waiting until after detailed Census data is published before finalizing and adopting a redistricting map. An independent redistricting advisory commission has been formed to encourage City Council members to use a transparent remap process.
