LANSING, Ill. (June 28, 2022) – Thousands of residents across the state of Illinois went to the polls on Tuesday to vote in the state’s primary election ahead of the general election on November 8.

State and national race results

Statewide media have reported tallies for the Illinois and U.S. races, and results indicate that Darren Bailey and running mate Stephanie Trussell will be the Republican candidates for Governor and Lieutenant Governor, matching up against JB Pritzker and Juliana Stratton on November 8.

Results from other races, including U.S. races for Senate and House, Illinois races for Attorney General, Secretary of State, Comptroller, Treasurer, and others can be found by referring to outlets such as PBS, the Chicago Tribune, WGN, or others.
