SUPREME / APPELLATE DISTRICT MAP

The Supreme Court, highest tribunal in Illinois, has seven justices, elected from judicial districts for a term of 10 years. Three justices are elected from the First District (Cook County), and one from each of the other four districts.

The Appellate Court hears appeals from the Circuit Courts. There are elected from each of the same five districts, and Judges are elected for 10-year terms. Cook County, which comprises the 1st District, has 18 Appellate Judges.

The remaining 101 counties are divided into four districts that elect six Judges each. Additional Judges are assigned by the Supreme Court to the Appellate Court, temporarily, on a showing of need.  Elgin is the seat of the 2nd District; Ottawa, the 3rd; Springfield, the 4th, and Mount Vernon, the 5th.

Information on Appellate retentions can be found by clicking on the individual districts on the map below. A map of the individual circuits can be found here.  A map of the Cook County subcircuits can be found here.
