Race for City Clerk

Incumbent reelected

The City Clerk is one of three citywide elected positions in Chicago. The clerk is responsible for maintaining City Council legislation; selling city vehicle stickers, parking permits, and licenses; and running the city’s municipal ID program. Mayor Rahm Emanuel appointed incumbent Clerk Anna Valencia in 2016. She is running uncontested. Key issues in the race include the future of the municipal ID program and changes to fines and fees for vehicle stickers and parking tickets.


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.
