Chicago mayoral candidate Lori Lightfoot announced today that her campaign has collected over 30,000 petition signatures, well beyond the 12,500 required to get on the February ballot.
The Lightfoot campaign has collected signatures from residents of each of Chicago’s 50 wards and has engaged over 100 unpaid volunteers in signature collection efforts. Throughout the next week, the campaign will continue collecting petition signatures to be submitted on November 26th.
“I’m humbled by the dedication of our volunteers,” said Lightfoot. “Throughout the petition collection process, we’ve had opportunities to engage volunteers and hear from tens of thousands of Chicago voters. It’s clear that people want change—they want a government that works for them and a leader who will fight for them every day and put their needs first. Our enthusiastic volunteers and supporters reflect the grassroots momentum needed to win this race and bring much-needed change to this city.”
