After months of campaigning and debate, Newton voters will head to the polls tomorrow to elect new members to the Board of Aldermen and School Committee.
Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. (locations listed below)
Newton Patch will be live tomorrow with coverage from the polls and results at the end of the night courtesy of the Newton Election Commission. Make sure to check back and let us know how the polls are looking and your thoughts on the winners.
Information to review before tomorrow:
How does it work?
- Each ward has two aldermen-at-large, which are voted on by everyone in the city. The ward's one ward alderman, however, is elected only by the people in his/her ward.
- Each ward also has one, at-large School Committee representative, a position that every voter in the city elects.
