          With the exception of the election of the first Mayor of Chicago on May 2, 1837, the election of municipal officers was held annually on the first Tuesday of March during the years from 1838 to 1860. The City elections from 1861 to 1867 were held on the third Monday in April. On March 10, 1869, when the city was divided in twenty wards, the time of the municipal election was changed from April to the first Tuesday after the first Monday in November, the officers elected for a term of two years assuming office on the first Monday of December. The terms of the city officials then holding office were extended from April to December. November elections remained in effect from 1869 to 1875, after which time municipal elections were held on the first Tuesday in April. An election was held on July 12, 1876, when the city reorganized under the law passed by the Illinois Legislature in 1872 providing for the incorporation of cities, towns and villages in the state, and adopted by the people of Chicago at a referendum held April 23, 1975. (See p. XXX of Proceeding of Chicago City Council for year 1890-91, for footnote relating to municipal election of July 12, 1876) A further exception should be noted in the case of Mayor John P. Hopkins, who was elected on December 19, 1893 to fill the unexpired term of Mayor Carter H. Harrison, who had been assassinated on October 31, 1893.

          The term of office of the Mayor was one year from 1837 to 1863, when the term was lengthened to two years. In 1907 the four-year term went into effect. The term of office of members of the City Council was one year from 1837 to 1850. In 1851 they were elected for a two-year term, one alderman being elected from each ward annually. The four-year term for alderman went into effect in 1935. The four-year term for City Clerk and City Treasurer went into effect in 1923. The office of City Attorney was abolished by vote of the people on November 7, 1905 and the duties of the office thereafter were performed by the Corporation Council and his assistants.
