After weeks of contentious campaigning, voters in Chicago were having their say Tuesday in the race for mayor, and 19 races for alderman.
Some sleazy tactics have surfaced in at least one race for alderman on the South Side.
Residents of 14 of Chicago’s 50 wards are heading to the polls today to cast their ballots in runoff elections for alderman.
This week’s elections will usher in a new look for the Chicago City Council, even if all the incumbents on the ballot win.
As many as 10 sitting Chicago aldermen appear headed into one-on-one runoff elections in April and four more open aldermanic races are headed towards runoffs between the top two contenders.
