The 33rd Ward is represented by Ald. Deb Mell and covers Ravenswood Manor, Avondale, Albany Park and Irving Park. The diverse ward has a low crime rate and some thriving business strips, but could use more affordable housing, candidates say. Mell faces two challengers, but all tout similar beliefs: more affordable housing, more funding for public schools and protecting immigrant communities and LGBTQ 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.
