Race for 48th Ward Alderman

Incumbent reelected

The lakeside 48th Ward includes Edgewater and Andersonville. Incumbent Ald. Harry Osterman, a former state Representative, has represented the ward since 2011. His mother, Kathy, also served as alderman in the late 1980s. Key issues include housing affordability 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.
