Elected Mayor

Richard J. Daley

In the Chicago mayoral election of 1975 Richard J. Daley was elected to a record sixth term as mayor by a landslide 78% margin.

This was the first Chicago mayoral election since the ratification of the Twenty-sixth Amendment to the  United States Constitution, which lowered the voting age from 21 to 18.

Only one other individual (Daley's son Richard M. Daley) has matched Daley's feat of winning six Chicago mayoral elections.
