Preparations for November 5 Municipal Election announced

BOSTON – Friday, October 25, 2019 – The City of Boston Election Department today announced its preparations ahead of the upcoming Municipal Election on Tuesday, November 5, 2019. The election includes Councilor seats for each district, as well as citywide At-Large seats and a nonbinding public opinion advisory question. Polling locations around the City will be open from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. The full list of candidates and this cycle’s ballot question can be found here.

In addition to Council seats, the citywide ballot will include the nonbinding public opinion advisory question: “Do you support the renaming/changing of the name of Dudley Square to Nubian Square?” To get on the ballot, nonbinding public opinion advisory questions are initiated by a citizen petition and approved by the City Council and the Mayor. 

The deadline to submit an application for an absentee ballot is November 4, 2019 at 12:00 p.m. and can be done by mail or in person at the Election Department in City Hall. In person absentee voting is available in the Election Department during regular business hours as well as on Saturday, October 26 and Saturday, November 2 from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. If voting absentee by mail, the completed ballot must be received by 8:00 p.m. on Election Day to be counted. 

Polling locations for Election Day can be found using the Secretary of the Commonwealth’s website. Due to ongoing construction on several municipal buildings, there are four polling location changes this year:
