Race for 14th Ward Alderman

Incumbent reelected

In one of this election’s marquee races, Ald. Ed Burke is running for a 13th term representing the 14th Ward, which includes Archer Heights, Gage Park and Brighton Park. Burke, who was charged in January by federal prosecutors with attempted extortion, maintains his innocence and has rebuffed calls to resign and drop out of the race. He faces civil engineer Tanya Patiño and lawyer Jaime Guzman in a ward that is now home to a majority of Latino residents.


To win, candidates must receive more than 50 percent of the vote. If no candidate reaches that threshold, the top two candidates will advance to a run off on April 2.

Percentages are based on the available ballots tallied by the Chicago Board of Elections. Percentages listed do not indicate a winner until all ballots are counted.
