ⓘ 1885 United States Senate election in Illinois

The 1885 United States Senate election in Illinois was held from February 18 to May 19, 1885. The contentious election was determined by a joint session of the Illinois General Assembly. Incumbent Republican United States Senator John A. Logan, seeking a third term in the United States Senate, was unanimously nominated by a Republican caucus. However, some assemblymen expressed concern about the candidate and abstained from supporting him.

Logan initially was opposed by Democrat William Ralls Morrison, who was nominated during a legislative session. When the election began on 18 February, the Assembly 102 for the Republicans and a coalition of 102 supporting the Democrats, thus producing a stalemate. Over the next two months, elections were to no avail during the joint meetings. April 12, Democratic representative died and the Republican candidate won the special election to replace him. This angered the Democrats, who are tired of Morrisons lack of appeal and appointed judge Lambert tree in its place. After three months, the last Republican control has agreed to follow the rest of his party, and Logan was elected with 103 out of 204 votes.
