Today, Monday, February 9, 2015 is the first day of early voting in Chicago’s municipal elections.
Whether Rahm Emanuel is re-elected as Mayor of Chicago turns on something simple: how many people vote?
There will be 250,000 Chicagoans who vote against Rahm no matter what. If 350,000 Chicagoans vote against Rahm, he will be forced into a run-off with the strongest not-Rahm candidate. If 350,000 Chicagoans vote against Rahm in the first round (February 24 election), the not-Rahm candidate will be the favorite to win the second round (April 7).
If you want to beat Rahm, your mission is simple. Get a list of the registered voters in your precinct and contact them. Make sure they vote.
Below the fold for analysis.
