2015 Mayoral Election Analysis: A Tale of Two Cities

April 15, 2015

ICPR recently commissioned Scott Kennedy of Illinois Election Data to provide an analysis of every aspect of the recent Chicago Mayoral elections. We are sharing our work with you, the press, and other experts for review, comments, and insights.

Additionally, we plan to release a series of small reports on different aspects of this analysis. We believe this report, provided by ICPR and Scott Kennedy, offers the most comprehensive data on this unprecedented election. We welcome your comments and ideas as we continue to explore these topics. Please contact our Deputy Director, Sarah Brune, at or 312-436-1274 with questions or comments. Click here to view the report.

ICPR also held two forums to analyze, dissect, and further understand the April Chicago Runoff Election. At our first forum, “Empowering Candidates, Empowering Voters,” we invited the Mayoral and Aldermanic candidates to discuss campaign finance issues and solutions. Our second forum, “Chicago Politics in Transition,” was a sold out event, featuring experts on Chicago elections, Illinois politics, and election data. We look forward to continuing to bring data and analysis to voters in meaningful ways.
