Woodrow Wilson
Democratic

The 1916 United States presidential election in Illinois was held on November 7, 1916 as part of the 1916 United States presidential election. State voters chose twenty-nine electors to the Electoral College, who voted for president and vice president.

Illinois was won by the Republican nominee Charles Evans Hughes with 52.56% of the popular vote. Hughes was the first presidential candidate to garner over a million votes in a single state, due to Illinois having allowed women to cast votes for electors, though not yet for other offices.

With 52.56% of the vote, Illinois would proved to be Hughes' fifth strongest state in terms of popular votes percentage after Vermont, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Iowa.[1]
