Race for 49th Ward Alderman

Challenger elected

Incumbent Ald. Joe Moore started his long tenure on City Council representing Rogers Park as an independent who often bucked Mayor Richard M. Daley and launched participatory budgeting nationally. His independent streak softened under Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s administration. Key issues in the race include housing affordability and crime.


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.
