The Chicago mayoral election has already made history in more ways than one - and it's not over yet.
The battle will now continue well beyond Tuesday as Chicagoans prepare for another round of voting. The runoff election is set for April 2 between the top two vote getters in the February vote - Toni Preckwinkle and Lori Lightfoot.
No matter who wins the runoff, Chicago's next mayor will be an African-American woman for the first time in the city's history.
Election officials questioned if the runoff election will see a larger voter turnout than Tuesday's Election Day, which ended with a near-record low for the city.
“We've seen a remarkable number of institutions and individuals be reluctant to even offer an endorsement saying they’ll wait until April 2 and it’s possible voters have done the same," Chicago Election Board spokesman Jim Allen said.
With a runoff required, voters who requested a mail-in ballot will have to request another one for the runoff election and the State Board of Elections will send emails to mail-in voters notifying them of the new ballot.
