Raymond "Ray" Poe (born March 26, 1944) is a Republican member of the Illinois House of Representatives, representing the 99th district since 1994. He is currently the minority spokesman on the House Personnel and Pensions Committee.

Raymond Poe was the first person to announce his candidacy for Lieutenant Governor in the 2006 race. However, as the field got even more crowded, with many candidates for Governor having picked running mates, he realized his chances of winning in the Republican primary were slim. In December 2005, Illinois Senator Steve Rauschenberger ended his bid for Governor, choosing instead to run for Lieutenant Governor on a team with Ron Gidwitz, right after which Poe withdrew his candidacy to instead seek a 6th term in the House.
