A divided Board of Aldermen voted against the Election Commission’s recommendation to delay the special Ward 1 At-Large Aldermen election to November. The vote on Tuesday was 12 to 10 with one abstention (Scott Lennon).

If I understand it correctly, the date for the election will be set at the next board meeting although the consensus is that it would be held in June on the same day as the U.S. Senate special election.

Newton’s League of Women Voters also weighed in on the matter, distributing a letter to the board against the delay.
