The 2018 Candidates for Governor of Illinois

     The following is a list of the four candidates (#1-#4) in the 2018 gubernatorial election for Illinois, who will be on the ballot; and ten (#5-#14) of the people who have declared their intent to run as write-in candidates for the governor with the Illinois State Board of Elections.
     Since write-in candidates for governor are required to seek ballot access in each county separately, the only way to find out how many write-in candidates there are for Illinois governor, would be to call each board of elections in all 102 Illinois counties, and find out whom has filed. Only the ten most highly populated counties' election boards were consulted during the course of research for this article.
     The election for Illinois governor will be held on Tuesday, November 6th, 2018.
