New Chicago Ward Proposal Would Give Hispanics Four Additional Seats

A new ward map proposal for Chicago would give Hispanics four super-majority seats based on information from the latest Census.

Three of the proposed wards would be south side neighborhoods, while the fourth would be on Chicago’s Southwest Side and would bring together five wards, some of which are predominately Hispanic and the others black.

The new proposal would affect the 10th, 13th, 23rd, 3rd, 15th, 16th, 18th and 20th.
