List of representatives[edit]

Illinois elected its United States Representative At-Large on a general ticket upon achieving statehood December 3, 1818. It last elected a US Representative in the Election of 1946. The district has been inactive since.

1818 – 1833: One seat[edit]

From statehood to 1833, Illinois had only one congressional district, and therefore it was at-large.
