Unincorporated Des Plaines, IL - Chicago code?


I bought a TH in unincorporated Des Plaines, and I'm not sure if I'm bound by Chicago electrical code? If not do I just follow NEC and be ok? My main project right now is running can lights in the living room where there is drywall (sections ripped out currently) on the ceiling, and basement (bare joists).
