The internet is widely seen as reinventing politics in America. It is undeniably having an impact in national elections, but what is happening locally? This thesis seeks to construct a theoretical framework for understanding the potential advantages and disadvantages of engaging in politics online. It then attempts to analyze Chicago's 2007 aldermanic elections within that framework. Does the internet level the playing field for long-shot candidates? Can web presence substitute for other campaign resources? Is cyberspace more amenable to certain causes than to others? How does the internet fit in to the current structure of power in Chicago? Will it help solve problems of political exclusion, or does the "Digital Divide" simply create new social cleavages? These are some of the questions that emerge for which answers are sought.
