Low turnout is expected

November 06, 2017 - 10:08 am

Tuesday is Election Day, and the two main candidates for the mayor of Boston are making a final push for votes.  Incumbent Mayor Marty Walsh held a lead of more than 30 points over City Councilor Tito Jackson in recent polls of the race.  Walsh was first elected two years ago, and is seeking a second term in office, saying he is leading the city in the right direction.  Jackson says Walsh has not provided leadership on key issues that include education and crime reduction. Turnout is expected to be extremely low. The Secretary of State expects a record low turnout, possibly lower than 25 percent according to the Boston Globe.
