2023 Chicago Mayoral Ranked-Choice Voting Poll
With nine candidates and polls showing no clear front-runner, the race for Chicago mayor is all but certain to head to a costly, divisive runoff. In the meantime, many voters are struggling with whether to vote for the candidate they like best and risk “wasting their vote” if their favorite doesn’t do well, or voting for the “lesser of two evils” who might have the best chance of winning. With ranked-choice voting, Chicagoans would be spared that dilemma, along with a lengthy runoff campaign.
We created the ranked-choice voting poll below to simulate a ranked-choice election for Chicago’s next mayor. Once you cast your ballot, you’ll see the preliminary results of the poll in real time.
