Where Republicans Live in Chicago

Chicago may be synonymous with the Dems, but there are exceptions. You just need to know where to look.


41st Ward

18% of voters pulled Republican ballots in the March primary

This northwest nook, which includes the suburb-like neighborhoods Norwood Park and Edison Park (popular with police officers and firefighters), is the city’s most conservative ward. It’s had the highest percentage of GOP voters in each national election since 2008—and is represented by Chicago’s only Republican alderman, Anthony Napolitano.

 19th Ward

14% of voters pulled Republican ballots in the March primary

Certain precincts lean even more conservative in this southwest section, particularly in Mount Greenwood (also a cop favorite—notice a pattern?), where 68 percent of 3rd Precinct voters opted for Romney in 2012.

50th Ward

11% of voters pulled Republican ballots in the March primary

The single most conservative precinct in the city can be found in West Ridge, a northern-border neighborhood that has a large concentration of Orthodox Jews. Last time around, 70 percent of 11th Precinct voters pulled the Romney lever.
