Elected Mayor

Richard J. Daley

In the Chicago mayoral election of 1971 Richard J. Daley was elected to a fifth term as mayor, defeating Republican Richard Friedman by a landslide 40% margin.

In winning his fifth mayoral election, Daley tied the record set by both Carter Harrison Sr. and Carter Harrison Jr. for the most Chicago mayoral election victories. He also became the first individual elected to five consecutive terms as Mayor of Chicago.

Daley faced weak opposition in the election, with no serious challengers arising.[2]

This was the final Chicago mayoral election to be held before the ratification of the Twenty-sixth Amendment to the  United States Constitution, which lowered the voting age from 21 to 18. Thus, it was the final Chicago mayoral election in which the voting age was 21.
