Senate

The Illinois Senate as elected in 1872 contained 51 members, one from each state legislative district. This was the first legislative session following the Illinois Constitution of 1870, which established these districts and stated that Senators were to serve overlapping 4-year terms. George W. Burns resigned on September 20, 1873, and was replaced by Maurice Kelley.

Republican John Lourie Beveridge was elected president of the Senate, thereby also taking on the role of acting lieutenant governor. However, Governor Richard J. Oglesby was elected to the United States Senate, ascending on January 23. This made Beveridge the acting Governor of Illinois. John Early was named president, and thus lieutenant governor, in his place.
