Why did the District map change?

The Illinois House of Representatives, alongside the State Senate, forms the legislative branch of our state government. Together with the governor, it works to create laws and establish a state budget. The Illinois House is divided into 118 legislative districts, and each district’s elected representative provides a voice for their respective constituents. Jack Vrett is ready to be that fresh voice for the 53rd District! 


Last year, the 118 district boundaries were redrawn as part of the post-census redistricting process.  Beginning January 1, 2023, the newly re-drawn Illinois 53rd House District will include all or parts of the communities of Arlington Heights, Des Plaines, Mount Prospect, Palatine, Rolling Meadows, and Schaumburg.  You can see if you you reside in the newly redrawn District below.
