Incumbent Mayor

Rahm Emanuel



An election for Mayor of Chicago was held on February 26, 2019. The election is officially nonpartisan; the winner will be elected to a four-year term. Since no candidate received a majority of votes, a runoff election will be held on April 2, 2019 between the two candidates with the most votes. The elections are concurrent with the 2019 Chicago aldermanic elections that will elect all 50 members of the Chicago City Council, as well as with elections for City Clerk of Chicago and City Treasurer of Chicago.

Incumbent Mayor Rahm Emanuel initially announced he would run for a third term but withdrew in September 2018.[3] Emanuel was first elected in 2011 (winning in the first round with 55.19% of the vote) and reelected in 2015 (receiving 55.7% of the vote in the runoff election).

Due to the time needed to complete process of reviewing nearly 200 challenges to candidate petitions in the mayoral race and other municipal elections, the start of the early voting period for the first round had been delayed to January 29 from its previously scheduled January 17 date.[4][5][6]

After the first round, Lori Lightfoot and Toni Preckwinkle advanced to the runoff election.[7] This election is being deemed historic as it will elect Chicago's first African American woman as chief executive.[8] Lori Lightfoot is also openly gay and if elected, she would be the first openly LGBT Mayor of Chicago.[9]

Candidates[edit]

In order to be listed on the ballot, candidates were required to submit petitions between November 19 and 26.[10][11]

Mayoral candidates at a forum at the Copernicus Center in Chicago's Jefferson Park neighborhood, December 2018

Any certified candidate (those whose petitions had been certified by the Board of Elections) may have had their nomination papers challenged up until December 1.[11] Those candidates with properly-filed challenges against their petitions would have their candidature subjected to hearings and procedures which would assess the validity of their petitions.[11] If any candidate failed to file a statement of economic interests within five days of having their petition certified, then their certification would be revoked.[11]

The deadline to file a notarized declaration of intent to be a write–in candidate was December 27, 2018.[12][11] An exception to the December 27 deadline for write-in candidates to file their declaration of intent existed for circumstances in which a candidate lost their certification after the December 27 deadline due to the outcome of a challenge to their petitions (candidates in this circumstance were granted until February 19 to file a notarized declaration of intent to run as a write-in candidate).[11]

Certified candidates (those whose petitions had been certified by the Board of Elections) were permitted to have their name removed from the ballot if they officially withdrew any time before December 20, 2018.[12][11] Even if they informally withdrew by ceasing to campaign, all certified candidates that did not file to formally withdraw before the December 20 deadline would have their names listed on the ballot regardless of whether they were still active contenders.[12] However, after December 20 candidates still may have filed to officially withdraw, an action which would have instructed the Board of Elections to deem all votes cast for the candidates as invalid when tallying votes.[11]

The total of fourteen candidates on the February mayoral ballot is record-setting for Chicago mayoral elections.[13][14]

Voter turnout[edit]

First round[edit]

Turnout in the first round of the election was 35.32%[308][309] The turnout was considered by the media to be low.[314][315][316]

On the day of the election, there were concerns that the turnout was on track to be low enough to supplant the 2007 election as the record setter for the lowest turnout in Chicago mayoral election history.[317][318]

The 35.32% turnout was higher than that of the first round of the 2015 election,[319] but was lower than that of the 2015 runoff.[320] Turnout was lower than the previous open race in 2011.[321][322]

Turnout was reported to be lowest among the millennial age demographic, with a lower turnout among those under 35 than the previous lowest under-35 turnout in 2007.[323]
