Do you know which congressional district you're voting in this Election Day?

Things have changed between 2020 and 2022, and that could mean a big difference for some voters in Tuesday's Illinois midterm election .

What you'll see on your 2022 ballot when you step into the voting booth will at least partially depend on where in the state you live.

Here's how to find out which races you'll be voting in and what else will be on your ballot.

Congressional Race

Among the items on the ballot will be local Congressional races, with voters voting in their specific districts. The map has changed between the 2020 and 2022 elections, with Illinois losing a Congressional seat, so districts were redrawn.
