2021 Boston City Council election

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Boston City Council elections are scheduled to be held on November 2, 2021. Voters will elect councillors for all 13 seats; nine from districts of the city and four selected at-large. A preliminary election, if needed, would be held on September 21.[1] A preliminary election is held when any district seat has more than two candidates, and when there are more than eight candidates for the four at-large seats. Council members elected in November 2021 will be inaugurated in January 2022. By law, Boston municipal elections are nonpartisan—candidates do not represent a specific political party.

Incumbents

The council entered 2021 with the following incumbent members:[2]

double-dagger O'Malley became council president in March 2021

Announcements

Note that there is precedence for a candidate in Boston to run for both city council and mayor. Charles Yancey, as an incumbent member of the council, did so in 2013;[25] he was eliminated from the mayoral race in the preliminary election, and was re-elected to his District 4 seat on the city council in the general election. A subsequent proposal to bar candidates from simultaneously running for two offices failed to get approval from the Massachusetts state legislature.[26] A person may not hold both offices,[27] other than in an acting capacity as prescribed by the Boston City Charter.

Candidates

This section lists persons who have announced their intent to seek election. To appear on the ballot, candidates must file nomination papers at Boston City Hall by 5:00 p.m. on May 18 with a sufficient number of certified signatures of registered voters. The number of signatures required varies: 1,500 signatures for candidates seeking at-large seats, or 200 signatures for candidates seeking district seats, except for District 7 (195 signatures), District 8 (130 signatures), and District 9 (164 signatures).[1]
