(COOK COUNTY, IL) — President Preckwinkle today announced a new transparency and civic engagement initiative with the launch of “Find My District,” an interactive web map that shows a majority of the overlapping political districts of any address in Cook County, using public data provided by the County Clerk.  

Visitors to the site can enter an address or point to a location on the map and find its districts as well as the district’s elected representatives and their contact information. Visitors can also use their phone or computer’s built-in GPS to find the information for their current location.  

“Illinois has more units of local government than any other state in the nation,” said President Preckwinkle. “Our Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Department created this interactive map to make it easier for residents to find and contact local officials and learn about their responsibilities.”  

"The Clerk's Office is pleased to partner in this new interactive initiative that will help Cook County residents identify the government offices that serve their communities and provide them with the information that they need to contact their elected officials to make inquiries, access services, and make their voices heard," said Cook County Clerk Karen A. Yarbrough.
