If the City Council can not reach 41 votes for a map, we will be voting on June 28th in a referendum. The two choices currently on the ballot are the Chicago United Map which comes out of the Rules Committee and the People's Coalition Map. The United Map is a very gerrymandered map breaking up West Ridge into representation by 3 wards; the 49th, 50th and the 40th. The People's Map which came out of the independent Redistricting Commission will most likely not be on the ballot. 

WRCO plans to hold a community meeting in early June if a referendum vote is to take place. We want to provide residents with the information they need to make an informed choice. This remap will determine who represents us in the City Council for the next 10 years. 

Go to Chicago's Wards to view the proposed maps. Scroll down to see the Chicago Ward Maps Collection to compare and analyze the maps. Click the icon in the top left corner to select which map(s) you want to view and zoom into your neighborhood to see how it would be represented, OR click “View Larger Map” in the top right-hand corner to be able to search an address.
