Race for 38th Ward Alderman

Incumbent reelected

The Northwest Side’s 38th ward includes Dunning and Portage Park. Former firefighter Nick Sposato has represented the area since 2011 and survived a ward remap in 2015. Sposato has been a fierce advocate for police and firefighters who heavily populate his ward and departed City Council’s Progressive Caucus over divides about social and police reform issues. Sposato 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.
