CHICAGO — Mayor Lori Lightfoot is out — and Paul Vallas or Brandon Johnson are about to be in at City Hall’s top spot.
Lightfoot lost in the crowded mayoral race during Tuesday’s election, while Vallas and Johnson secured the most votes and are headed to a runoff. Several aldermanic races are also headed to the April 4 runoff.
If you’re a local politics geek like us, you’re probably poring over the data to see who won big where, how Chicagoans voted — and what exactly could happen during that runoff.
We pulled together maps and charts to help you understand this latest election:
