Town Election Candidates to Date

Voting Clipart

Many candidates turned in nomination papers by the March 31 deadline, and the Democrats nominated one new candidate at their caucus on April 5. We await the final list of candidates after the April 11 Republican caucus, but in the meantime here is the list of candidates to date. So far, the only contested race is for School Committee. In addition there are two ballot questions this year: the Underride and the Library.
