Elections in Illinois start with the primaries in March, and some Stateline counties have released sample ballots for reference.
So far, Winnebago, Boone and Ogle counties have released sample ballots to the public. Stephenson and Lee counties say they will have samples for the public that will be released before the primaries.
Stateline counties have already released their lists of candidates. However, the Winnebago County list has a change: Winnebago County Chairman Scott Christiansen has announced he will no longer be running for re-election.
