2021 Election Guides

Preliminary Guide

This guide covers the 2021 races for City Council as well as School Committee. The candidate questions in this guide are generated through a community input survey to identify issues that residents care most about. It also includes more fun questions like favorite music and places in the city!

Please note that ONLY City Council Districts 2, 3, 4, & 7 have a preliminary! There are NO preliminaries for At-Large or School Committee races.

We also have a shorter “Who’s Running?!” guide available here.
