Greek-American Paul Vallas Leads Latest Polls for Mayor of Chicago

February 28, 2023

CHICAGO – Paul Vallas is at the top of polls leading up to today’s election for mayor in Chicago. According to James Neveau writing for nbcchicago.com “a new poll, conducted just days before Tuesday’s election, shows former Chicago Public Schools CEO Paul Vallas expanding his lead in the city’s mayoral race, with three candidates still battling it out to determine who could finish second and force an April runoff.”

The article notes that, “if no candidate reaches 50% in the election, the top two vote-getters would face off in an April 4 runoff election,” the article notes, adding that, “in addition to the possibility of a recount, which could occur if a candidate is within 5% of the second place spot, there is also the possibility that mail-in ballots could impact the outcome. According to the latest updates from the Board of Elections, just over 100,000 mail-in ballots have still yet to be submitted, and as long as those ballots are postmarked by Election Day and returned by March 14, they can still be accepted and counted.”
