Voting Blocs

African Americans, Chicago’s largest racial group and biggest voting bloc, are overrepresented among voters who were challenged in a citywide canvass last summer.


Notes: Black, white and Latino are designated for wards with a racial or ethnic majority. Mixed wards are those where no racial or ethnic group made up more than 50 percent of the population. Restored voters are registered voters who were incorrectly challenged and restored their full status by voting in the March 2004 primary elections.
