Only a few days left to vote for mayor, 29th Ward alderman

By |

Early voting continues this weekend, leading up to Election Day when the polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

West Side voters will be helping choose the next mayor as well as deciding whether to keep 29th Ward Ald. Chris Taliaferro, who faces a challenge from CB Johnson.

Learn more about the two 29th Ward candidates in this Block Club story. The Chicago Sun-Times has also covered the race.

Taliaferro is seeking his third time; the chairman of the Chicago City Council’s Public Safety Committee received 49.8% of the vote in the Feb. 28 election, falling just 25 votes short of avoiding the April 4 runoff.

Johnson, the longtime leader of a nonprofit that helps people recovering from drug use, came in second, garnering 39.8% of the vote.

In the mayoral race, Austin resident and Cook County Commissioner Brandon Johnson and former CPS CEO Paul Vallas are running to replace Lori Lightfoot, who didn’t make the runoff in a field of nine candidates.

Johnson and Vallas offer stark differences on education and policing, as noted by Block Club Chicago. Learn who is financially supporting their campaigns, as reported by the Chicago Tribune.
