The mayoral term in Chicago was two years from 1837 through 1907, at which time it was lengthened to four years. Until 1861, municipal elections were held in March. In that year, legislation changed them to April. In 1869, however, election time was changed to November, and terms expiring in April of that year were lengthened.
