CHICAGO — After months of robocalling, flier-littering, baby-kissing, handshaking and any and all other campaign strategies to win the hearts and votes of Chicagoans, decisions on how to staff City Hall are in the hands of the voters Tuesday for the city's 2015 municipal election.

After a 23 percent voter turnout at early polling places, Chicagoans will head to the polls Tuesday between 6 a.m. and 7 p.m. to vote for their mayor, aldermanic representatives, city officials and on various advisory measures.

The mayoral race is easy enough to follow, with four challengers fighting for Rahm Emanuel's seat while the mayor rallies to keep the spot he won in 2011.

More unwieldy are the city's aldermanic races, where redrawn ward boundaries leave many residents facing a ballot full of unfamiliar names.

If you find yourself wondering "where's my ward? who's my alderman? whom am I voting for?" on your way to the polls — fear not. We've got the 411 on everyone running in every race, plus a map with the latest ward boundaries.

Linked below is an easy-to-download guide of every ward's candidates that you can save to your phone, or print out, and bring to the polls.

(Don't take any snapshots of your ballot, though — that could get you into trouble.)

Problems with voting can be reported to the Chicago Board of Election Commissioners online at chicagoelections.com or by calling 312-269-7870.

If no candidate gets 50 percent of the vote, the top two vote-getters will square off in a runoff on April 7.
