Every 20 years, Illinois voters decide on whether to hold the Illinois Constitutional Convention, where the Illinois Constitution is assessed and amended. Lawrence N. Hansen ran for delegate of the convention in 1969. His run brought some controversy: he ran as a Kane County delegate although it was reported that he actually owned a residence in Cook County. Hansen stated that he owned the residence merely to be closer to his place of work and considered his parents' house in Elgin (Kane County) his true home.
