  • African-American enrollment in the University of Illinois system has inched up in recent years, but it’s still far from representative of the state as a whole.

  • For the second time this year, Champaign County has a new district map for next year’s election.

In today’s deep dive, we’ll take a look at Illinois’ progress on getting 1 million new electric vehicles on the roads.
