Elected Alderman

TBD

The 2015 Chicago aldermanic elections happened on February 24, 2015, to elect the 50 Aldermen that represent Chicago in the City Council. The elections were non-partisan and if no candidate received an absolute majority, a runoff would be held between the top two finishers on April 7, 2015.[1]

Ward boundaries had been redrawn since the previous 2011 election, to reflect the results of the 2010 United States Census.[2] The new ward map had been approved by the Chicago City Council in January 2012.[3]
