Incumbent Mayor

Rahm Emanuel



An election for Mayor of Chicago is scheduled to be held on February 26, 2019. The election is officially nonpartisan, and the winner will be elected to a four-year term. If no candidate receives a majority of votes, a runoff election will be held on April 2, 2019. The elections are concurrent with the 2019 Chicago aldermanic elections that will elect all 50 members of the city council, as well as with elections for city clerk and city treasurer.

Incumbent mayor Rahm Emanuel is not running for a third term.[1] 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 has been delayed to January 28 from its previously scheduled January 17 date.[2][3]

Candidates

In order to be listed on the ballot, candidates were required to submit petitions between November 19 and November 26.[4][5]

Any certified candidate (those whose petitions have been certified by the Board of Elections) may have their nomination papers challenged up until December 1.[5] Those candidates with properly-filed challenges against their petitions will have their candidature subjected to hearings and procedures which will to assess the validity of their petitions.[5] If any candidate fails to file a statement of economic interests within five days of having their petition certified, then their certification will be revoked.[5]

The deadline to file a notarized declaration of intent to be a write–in candidate is December 27, 2018.[6][5] An exception to the December 27 deadline for write-in candidates to file their declaration of intent exists for circumstances in which a candidate's lost their certification after the December 27 deadline due to the outcome of a challenge to their petitions (candidates in this circumstance are granted until February 19 to file a notarized declaration of intent to run as a write-in candidate).[5]

Certified candidates (those whose petitions have been certified by the Board of Elections) will be permitted to have their name removed from the ballot if they officially withdraw any time before December 20, 2018 (the date upon which the list of certified candidates will become final).[6][5] Even if they informally withdraw by ceasing to campaign, all certified candidates that do not file to formally withdraw before December 20 deadline will have their names listed on the ballot regardless of whether they are still active contenders.[6] However, after December 20 candidates may still file to officially withdraw, an action which would instruct the Board of Elections to deem all votes for the candidates as invalid when tallying votes.[5]
