Race for 36th Ward Alderman

Incumbent reelected

Another gerrymandered Northwest Side ward, the 36th includes some Latino neighborhoods and those traditionally inhabited by city employees, including Hermosa, Hanson Park, Portage Park, Galewood, and Dunning. Ald. Gilbert Villegas won the seat after a ward remap in 2015 left incumbent Ald. Nick Sposato in the new 38th ward. Villegas has since become chair of City Council's Latino Caucus and an advocate for higher minority and veteran contracting. Villegas is running unopposed.


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.
