The far South Side 34th Ward includes Washington Heights, West Roseland, West Pullman, and part of Morgan Park. Incumbent Ald. Carrie Austin has represented the ward since 1994, when she was tapped to take over for her late husband, Lemuel Austin. An ally of Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Austin chairs City Council's powerful Budget Committee and frequently advocates for more economic development and crime-fighting efforts in her ward.
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.
