Boston voters to cast ballots for City Council
Sep. 07, 2015
BOSTON (AP) — Some Boston voters will be casting ballots for City Council.
Tuesday, Sept. 8 is preliminary voting ahead of the Nov. 3 citywide election.
But only voters in Districts 4 and 7 -- where Councilors Charles Yancey and Tito Jackson are seeking re-election to two-year terms -- are taking part.
Most of Boston's 13 councilors are running unopposed.
The neighborhoods voting include parts of Mattapan, Roslindale, Jamaica Plain, Dorchester, Roxbury, South End, Fenway and Mission Hill. The city says over 78,000 residents are eligible to vote Tuesday.
Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. and the vote coincides with the start of public school in Boston.
Preliminary elections also are scheduled Tuesday to pick mayoral candidates in Springfield, and city council seats in Worcester.
