These cities and towns depend on municipal electrical licenses to help maintain a certain degree of electrical competence. There are municipalities that issue electrical contractor licenses based on Illinois state guidelines. Please visit each city or town's website in Illinois to verify whether your license is accepted in their municipalities.
