Preliminary election for City Council Sep. 12

There will be a preliminary election for City Council on Tuesday, September 12. Polls open at 7am and close at 8pm.

Preliminary elections are used to narrow the field of candidates for local office prior to the general election. They are held only when they are deemed necessary due to the number of candidates on the ballot. Note that municipal elections are officially non-partisan, so there are no party-specific ballots.

You must be registered to vote in Medford by this Wednesday, August 23, 8pm, to vote in the preliminary election. You can register to vote at Medford City Hall (rm. 102) or online.
