The Chicago Board of Election Commissioners announced Thursday that three mayoral candidates had been disqualified from the ballot.
Richard Mayers and Conrein Hykes Clark did not have the required number of valid signatures (12,500), and Sandra Mallory filed her paperwork incorrectly, a board spokesperson said.
That leaves 18 candidates in the mayoral race.
Several remaining candidates are facing challenges to their candidacies that are being considered by the board: Dorothy Brown, Catherine Brown D’Tycoon, La Shawn Ford, Ja’Mal Green, Neal Sales-Griffin, and Roger Washington.
Since December 19, Toni Preckwinkle has dropped challenges against Lori Lightfoot and Susana Mendoza after they were each found to have the required number of valid signatures during the board’s record exams.
Earlier this month, Jerry Joyce withdrew his challenge of Bill Daley, and Paul Vallas withdrew his challenge of Garry McCarthy.
