Race for 46th Ward Alderman

Race goes to runoff

The 46th ward includes parts of Uptown and Lakeview. The incumbent, Ald. James Cappleman, took office in 2011 after Ald. Helen Shiller stepped down. He faces five first-time candidates in his bid for a third term in office representing a ward with one of the highest voter turnout rates in the city. Key issues in the race include affordable housing, new development, and education funding.


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.
