Race for 37th Ward Alderman

Incumbent reelected

The West Side 37th Ward includes Austin and West Humboldt Park and has been represented by Ald. Emma Mitts since 2000, when she was tapped to replace indicted Ald. Percy Giles. Mitts is chair of the low-key, yet powerful License Committee. Key issues in the ward include the construction of the new police and fire training academy, economic development, and public safety.


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.
