Chicago mayoral candidate Lori Lightfoot filed more than 32,000 petition signatures today, 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.

“In this election, Chicagoans have a chance to take out the old political machine and finally build a transparent, accountable government that puts people and neighborhoods first,” said Lightfoot. “That vision is what helped us mobilize a broad-based effort to collect more than 32,000 petition signatures, and it’s what will continue to drive us through Election Day.”
