Democratic



The 2021 St. Louis mayoral election will be held on April 6, 2021.[2] Incumbent Democratic mayor Lyda Krewson was eligible to seek re-election to a second term in office, but chose to retire.[3] The primary election was held on March 2, 2021.[2]

Background

In 2017, then-St. Louis alderwoman Lyda Krewson was elected mayor, becoming the first female mayor of St. Louis. However, in late 2020, she announced that she would not seek re-election to a second term, despite being eligible to do so. Krewson cited her age as the primary reason for her retirement, saying: "I am now pushing 70. So after a lot of thinking and a lot of discussion with my family, I decided to retire in April and not run for re-election." Krewson had faced criticism during her term for her perceived mishandling of Black Lives Matter  protests in the summer of 2020, with numerous demonstrations outside the mayor's home and calls for her to resign. Krewson was also facing a primary challenge from  Treasurer of St. Louis Tishaura Jones and St. Louis alderwoman Cara Spencer, both of whom launched their campaigns for mayor before Krewson announced her retirement. However, Krewson denied that these factors had any influence on her decision not to seek re-election.[3]

Some also speculated that Proposition D, a ballot measure passed by St. Louis voters with 68% of the vote in November 2020, would have made it more difficult for Krewson to survive a primary challenge.[3] Proposition D altered St. Louis elections so that they would use a new electoral process. The old system used  partisan primaries with first-past-the-post voting. Since 2021, all candidates for municipal elections in St. Louis instead compete in a single nonpartisan primary. This primary uses approval voting, and the two candidates with the highest vote total advance to the general election.[2] Krewson opposed Proposition D, while Jones supported it.[3]
