State House and Senate Candidates
Raise Big Money with Mixed Results
"Cost per Vote" Based on Funds Raised by Candidates
Data includes votes cast for each candidate, the percent of registered district voters casting votes in each race, total funds raised by candidates from March 16th to November 8th, total funds in the race, and the amount raised per vote cast for each candidate. The top ten most expensive Illinois House races and the top 5 Illinois Senate races are included. Winners are highlighted in green. Figures for registered voters by district are taken from the most recently available State Board of Elections voter file, released in June.

The "Funds Raised per Vote" figure below takes the total funds raised by a candidate during the General Election divided by the votes they received. For example, Rep. Kate Cloonen raised $2,678,918, and received 20,172 votes in her election. Therefore, she raised about $133 for every vote she received. Expenditures data for the last month of the election will not be available until January, so a true "cost per vote" analysis cannot be calculated until that time.

Vote totals are sourced from the Chicago Tribune.
