Newton held a run-off election (called a preliminary) on September 15, where voters narrowed the field in the two races that feature more than two candidates for a given position. In this election, two races had a surfeit of candidates: Mayor and Ward 8 School representative (remember: ALL NEWTON VOTERS vote for all school committee positions).
As a service to voters, the LWVN prepared a Voters Guide featuring preliminary candidates’ answers to our questionnaire.
In addition, LWVN and NewTV sponsored debates in all of the preliminary races. Our video of the Mayoral Debate is available online.
