i really need to know.

Will Chicago and the rest of Illinois join Eastern Time in the future?

Think of China and Russia for example:

1. The entire mainland China has only ONE time zone and they don't observe daylight savings time. Whether you live in Western China like Urumqi, the time zone is still the same as Beijing! But China used to have 5 time zones and observe daylight savings time until the early 1990's.

2. In 2011, Russian President Vladimir Putin enacted a PERMANENT DAYLIGHT SAVINGS TIME policy in all Russia's time zone. Example Moscow is at the same time as Dubai and 9 hours ahead from New York City in during the Winter months. Putin said it would decrease depression or any mental issues. Back then, it gets dark in Moscow at 3pm during December-early January. But not all Russians are happy about the permanent daylight saving time law. Also Since the Russians took Crimea away from Ukraine months ago, Crimea has to be in the same time zone as Moscow.

Time zones are sometimes political, Indiana for example, they didn't observe daylight savings time until 2007. Time zones are still controversial in all of Indiana, 80% of the state are in Eastern time, counties near metropolitan Chicago and SW Indiana are on Central Time. I doubt that policies may change due to social and economic issues, Chicago and the rest of Illinois would be on Eastern Time zone maybe by 2025. Maybe Boston would be on Atlantic time (the time zone used in Eastern Canadian provinces and Puerto Rico).

Will Chicago and the rest of Illinois join Eastern Time in the future?

I don't see any point in this. Furthermore, all but one of the East cost states are already entirely in the Eastern Time Zone.

i know it sounds like a really stupid question..lol...but i really dont know ..?

Chicago follows Central Standard Time that is UTC-6 Hours.While DST is in observance the Chicago time zone is called  Central Daylight Saving Time, that is CDT - UTC-5 Hours.As per Energy Policy Act of 2005, effective year 2007, the US except Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and most of Arizonafollow Daylight Saving Time during Summer. Here is the complete list of DST information for other countries: Daylight Saving Time 2015 - Summer Time 2015 across the World .For 2015 the DST started in USA on 08 March 2015. DST for 2015 will end in 01 November 2015.

The whole state of Michigan is not an hour ahead of Illinois. Most of Michigan is in the Eastern Time Zone, but a few of the westernmost counties of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula (Gogebic, Iron, Dickinson and Menominee) are in the Central Time Zone, like the states of Wisconsin and Illinois. I included Wisconsin in my answer because many people who live in the Western Upper Peninsula of Michigan interact far more with people and businesses in Wisconsin than they do with the rest of the state of Michigan.PS: You can thank the US railways for urging Congress to enact time zones in 1883. Imagine trying to create a railroad timetable for a range of cities that all set their own local time based on sunrise…

Yes, basically.Culturally, Economically, and politically Illinois is a very divided state. For example, northern Illinois shares more in common with Wisconsin, Minnesota, and Michigan than it does with southern Illinois. The only parts of the state of Illinois that are really strongly Democrat are Cook county and many (but certainly not all) of the surrounding suburbs. Personally, I think that the map you gave does a disservice to how divided Illinois really is politically. Lots of Illinois republicans disliked Mark Kirk so it’s not a surprise that Duckworth was elected and so many counties went Democrat. However, back in the state election of 2014, the only county that voted for the incumbent Democrat was Cook, unsurprisingly.The most obvious and glaring reason for this conflict is the age-old urban vs rural divide. As you can see, the vast majority of the population lives in the Northeastern corner of the state. Roughly 8,000,000 people live in Illinois’ portion of the Chicago metropolitan area, out of the 12,800,000 in the state as a whole.It’s a shame how this conflict has caused so much harm to the state as a whole. There really shouldn’t be an excuse for our fiscal problems considering our wealth of natural resources. That’s what happens when you spend so much money on what you can’t afford to begin with.

Yes almost certainly. More rural areas tend towards the republican party, cities towards democrats. The suburbs are often the key tossup, Chicago suburbs will largely determine the state. Look at the politico map, trump won most of the state's counties and took almost 40% of the vote.So if there was no chicago, say the smaller city of Ft Dearborn or Calumet in its place with 10% of the population. Inner city still goes dem, suburbs go mixed. But a smaller city in its place would have politics more resembling other smaller rust belt cities like Cleveland detroit or Milwaukee. Hard democratic supporters in the city but less affluent suburbs and lacking the financial upper class influence. Might look more like Ohio or Wisconsin.But due to Chicago's location was primed to exist as a rail and transport hub, manufacturing center and financial center specializing in commodity trade. Maybe the fire wipes it out or something unlikely and Milwaukee, toledo, or Gary takes its place (stranger things have happened, see Galvestons economic activity moving to Houston). Then you get this scenario.But anyway. Take huge city out of a state and it will likely go republican. This is even the case in NY was that way, remove NYC and you have a republican majority state, legislature is already that way. More moderate than most parts of the country but I've seen stars and bars 30 minutes south of Canada there.

If the time is 6pm in eastern time then what time is it in chicago?

If you're speaking of Chicago, Illinois, then the entire state of Illinois is in the Central Time Zone, which is one hour behind the Eastern Time Zone.
So if it is 6pm Eastern time, it is 5pm in Chicago.
If you're ever in doubt, just turn the television to WGN, Chicago's flagship station.

What time zone is Chicago in?

Dahlias are hardy in Zone 7b, but a light mulch is always helpful in case of a severe winter. Dry soil in the winter is also essential for success. In colder zones, dahlias can be dug and stored in peat moss for the winter. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Chicago falls within Plant Hardiness Zone 5b, with the outlying areas falling into the sightly harsher Zone 5a. The Arbor Day Foundation has issued an updated plant hardiness zone map that places the lakefront and southern suburbs into the upper reaches of Zone 6. So, no matter which map you use, soil temperatures probably dip below freezing in the Chicago area. Consequently dahlia tubers will not overwinter and freeze.
