JavaScript DOM Scripting By Example Editing and Filtering Names Filter Invitees Who Have Not Responded

The filterCheckBox function isn't working for me

Hello! New to JavaScript. I've been following along with Guil's videos and haven't had this issue before. My filter checkbox isn't even showing up anymore and I'm getting the error 'Uncaught SyntaxError: Identifier 'i' has already been declared'. When submitting a name to the input form, the page just refreshes. I've looked over the code and didn't see any typos, but I would appreciate some extra eyes on it!

const form = document.getElementById('registrar');
const input = form.querySelector('input');

const mainDiv = document.querySelector('.main')
const ul = document.getElementById('invitedList'); //global constants 

const div = document.createElement('div');
const filterLabel = document.createElement('label');
const filterCheckBox = document.createElement('input');

filterLabel.textContent = "Hide those who haven't responded";
filterCheckBox.type = 'checkbox';
mainDiv.insertBefore(div, ul);

filterCheckBox.addEventListener('change', (e) => {
  const isChecked = e.target.checked;
  const lis = ul.children;
  if(isChecked) {
    for (let i = 0, i < lis.length, i += 1) {
      let li = lis[i];
      if (li.className === 'responded') {
        li.style.display = '';
      } else {
        li.style.display = 'none';
  } else {
    for (let i = 0, i < lis.length, i += 1) {
      let li = lis[i];
      li.style.display = '';

function createLI(text) { // createLI function is called when you hit the submit button -- line 26
  const li = document.createElement('li');
  const span = document.createElement('span');
  span.textContent = text;
  const label = document.createElement('label');
  label.textContent = 'Confirmed';
  const checkbox = document.createElement('input');
  checkbox.type = 'checkbox';
  //edit button
  const editButton = document.createElement('button');
  editButton.textContent = 'edit';
  //remove button
  const removeButton = document.createElement('button');
  removeButton.textContent = 'remove';

form.addEventListener('submit', (e) => { // when submitting this form, the inputted text is used to populate the createLI function
  const text = input.value;
  input.value = '';
  const li = createLI(text);


ul.addEventListener('change', (e) => { // handles the checkbox in the list item
  const checkbox = event.target;
  const checked = checkbox.checked;
  const listItem = checkbox.parentNode.parentNode;

  if (checked) {
    listItem.className = 'responded';
  } else {
    listItem.className = '';

ul.addEventListener('click', (e)=>{ // remove and edit button handler
  if (e.target.tagName==='BUTTON' ){
    const button = e.target;
    const li = e.target.parentNode;
    const ul = li.parentNode;
    if (e.target.textContent === 'remove'){
    } else if(e.target.textContent === 'edit'){
      const span = li.firstElementChild;
      const input = document.createElement('input');
      input.type = 'text';
      input.value = span.textContent;
      li.insertBefore(input, span);
      button.textContent = 'save';
    } else if(e.target.textContent === 'save'){
      const input = li.firstElementChild;
      const span = document.createElement('span');
      input.type = 'text';
      span.textContent = input.value;
      li.insertBefore(span, input);
      button.textContent = 'edit';

Found my issue! I used commas in my for loops instead of semi-colons.
