The Chicago mayoral election of 1999, which took place on February 23, 1999, resulted in the re-election of incumbent Richard M. Daley over Bobby Rush, with 428,872 votes to Rush's 167,709. Daley garnered a landslide 71.9% of the total vote, winning by a 44 point margin.[2] This was the first officially nonpartisan Chicago mayoral election, per a 1995 Illinois law.

As was the case in all of his reelection campaigns, Daley did not attend any debates.[3]

Joe Banks Jr. was denied inclusion on the ballot due to issues regarding the filing of his nomination papers.[4][5]
