Chicago 2019 Election Results Map: What Neighborhoods Voted – And For Whom?

Chicago made history Tuesday night when it set up an African-American woman to become mayor for the first time in the city’s 182-year history.

Amid one of the lowest voter turnouts, Lori Lightfoot led the field of 14 candidates by nabbing 17 percent of the vote. Toni Preckwinkle finished second with 16 percent of the vote. Because none of the candidates got more than 50 percent, the city will choose between Lightfoot and Preckwinkle on April 2.

Here is a closer look at which parts of the city supported whom.

As you can see, Lightfoot had a strong showing on a large part of the North Side, while Preckwinkle controlled the South Side along the lake. Those areas also had some of the highest voter turnout in the city.
