There are factual errors in your editorial [Ford for Chicago, Our Views, Viewpoints, Oct. 10]. The February 2019 election is not a Democratic primary. This is a nonpartisan election and it is not a primary. Candidates run without a party designation. Nominating petitions must not state a political party. Petitions stating a political party are not valid. A candidate who receives 50 percent plus 1 vote in February is the winner. If there are several candidates for an office and no one receives the required number of votes, there is a runoff between the two with the highest vote totals. This happens in April.
