Chicago's Voter Guide for Racial Equity
Ready to Vote for a Chicago
that Works for All of Us?
What is this campaign about?
On February 26, 2019, Chicagoans will vote for our next mayor, clerk, treasurer, and city council. The decisions these leaders make will decide if our city keeps being a place where we can predict the types of schools, housing, and programs our communities have based on the racial majority that lives in that neighborhood -- or if we will change course towards building a city that works for all of us.
This website is part of a larger project to help voters tell the difference between the 15 candidates for mayor and 159 candidates for city council, based on the issues that you voted are most important to you.
