Who are the candidates in the race for Chicago mayor?

CHICAGO (WLS) -- The Chicago mayoral election race has narrowed from 14 candidates to two: Lori Lightfoot and Toni Preckwinkle. See their one-on-one interviews with ABC7's Craig Wall and get important voter information before the 2019 election.

The run-off mayoral election between Lightfoot and Preckwinkle will be held Tuesday, April 2. The Chicago Board of Elections issued a proclamation to open early voting in wards and vote by mail early, on Thursday, March 14. The board said due to a calendar fluke the 2019 run-off season is seven days shorter than in 2015, and so they are opening early voting earlier to help offset the difference.

Voter registration services were available at every early voting site, including the Loop Super Site at 175 West Washington Street.
