The 2019 Chicago aldermanic election took place in two rounds on February 26 and April 2, 2019, to elect 50 aldermen to the Chicago City Council. Each alderman represents one of Chicago's 50 wards. The elections are non-partisan and use a two-round system where the top two finishers compete in a second-round run-off if no candidate receives more than 50% of the vote in the first round. The elections were party of the 2019 Chicago elections, which included elections for Mayor, City Clerk, City Treasurer.[1]

Of the 50 incumbent aldermen 45 ran for re-election.[2][1] Incumbents did not run in the 20th, 22nd, 25th, 39th, and 47th wards.[1] Five aldermen ran unopposed: Brian Hopkins (2nd ward), Scott Waguespack (32nd), Gilbert Villegas (36th), Brendan Reilly (42nd), and Nicholas Sposato (38th).[2]

Three aldermen were defeated in the first round, and four more were defeated in run-off elections. There were a total of 12 new aldermen elected: Daniel La Spata (1st ward), Stephanie Coleman (16th), Jeanette Taylor (20th), Michael Rodriguez (22nd), Byron Sigcho-Lopez (25th), Felix Cardona (31st), Rossana Rodríguez (33rd), Samantha Nugent (39th), Andre Vasquez (40th), Jim Gardiner (45th), Matt Martin (47th), and Maria Hadden (49th). After the election, the council's Progressive Caucus grew from 10 to 18 members and a new 6-member Socialist Caucus was formed.

Overview

Campaign

Candidates for city council are required to submit 473 valid signatures from registered voters in their ward to appear on the ballot.[3][4] A total of 212 candidates submitted nominating petitions, an increase from 184 candidates in the 2015 election.[1] However, the total number of candidates is lower than the 351 candidates in 2011, the last municipal election that, like 2019, had an open race for mayor.[4]

In the first round, three aldermen who ran for re-election lost their seats. There were run-offs elections in 14 wards: 10 races where incumbents are running, and four races for open seats.[5] At least three additional incumbent aldermen were defeated in run-off elections.[6][7]

Campaign

Hadden and Moore both identify as progressives, but their policy positions differ sharply on a number of issues, including policing, accepting donations from developers, use of tax-increment financing, and charter school expansion.[117] Both candidates participated in a debate hosted at Sullivan High School on January 15, 2019.[118][119][120] At the debate, they disagreed on a number of issues, including a freeze on new charter schools (Hadden supported one; Moore did not), funding for a new police training facility (Moore supported the ongoing proposal; Hadden did not), and use of tax-increment financing for the proposed Lincoln Yards project (Moore was in favor; Hadden was opposed).[119][121]

In February 2019, a controversy emerged when two photographers alleged that the Moore campaign used their photographs in campaign advertisements without permission or attribution.[122] Another controversy emerged late in the campaign when a Moore staffer accused a 15 year old Hadden volunteer (and former Moore intern) of espionage.[citation needed]

Campaign

Krupa ran on a platform of lowering property taxes and increasing police presence in the ward.[206] Krupa walked back comments from 2016, in which he had declared himself to be a, "day one Trump supporter" to a reporter from the Chicago Reader.[206] Krupa received support from 2018 Republican candidate for Illinois governor, Jeanne Ives, who helped fundraise for his campaign.[207]

Quinn had originally challenged Krupa's ballot petition. However, Quinn's campaign submitted 2,800 sworn affidavits to the Board of Elections, supposedly from residents that had claimed they never signed Krupa's petitions. This create a problem for Quinn, since Krupa had only filed around 1,700 signatures in his petition, and only 200 of those signatures overlapped with affidavits submitted by Quinn's campaign. This meant that the majority of affidavits submitted by Quinn were either falsified or fraudulent.[206] Quinn later dropped his challenge to Krupa, meaning that Krupa would appear on the ballot.[206] Reports arose that the FBI had opened an investigation into Quinn's affidavits.[206] This incident also brought free publicity to Krupa's candidacy.[206]
