Approximately 15,500 voters are expected to head to the polls today across the city, as the campaigns for Mayor, City Council and School Committee finally come to a head and voters have their say about the future direction of the city.
City Clerk Mary Audley said last week that she is expecting a 30-percent voter turnout, which based on the 51,352 registered voters would mean 15,406 voters at least.
The polls open today at 7 a.m. and will remain open until 8 p.m. when voting ends.
Incumbent Mayor Judith Flanagan Kennedy is facing City Council President Timothy Phelan in her effort to win re-election, as Phelan tries to convince residents the city could be doing better.
Voters can call 781-586-6805 to find out where their polling location is.
In addition to the Mayor’s race, there are races for At-Large City Council, School Committee and Ward Councilor in Wards 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5.
