Covering parts of Lakeview and Wrigleyville, the 44th Ward includes popular tourist spots like Wrigley Field and Boystown. Ald. Tom Tunney became the first openly gay alderman when he was elected in 2003 and has since been re-elected three times. Key issues in the ward include the ongoing expansion and renovations of Wrigley Field by the Ricketts family, who owns the Cubs, development around the field, CTA modernization and property taxes.
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.
