The Boston mayoral election of 2017 was held on Tuesday, November 7, 2017, to elect the mayor of Boston, Massachusetts. Incumbent Democratic mayor Marty J. Walsh won re-election to a second term, defeating District 7 City Councilor Tito Jackson,[1] and two long-shot candidates, Robert Cappucci and Joseph Wiley.[2][3]

A non-partisan preliminary election was held on Tuesday, September 26, 2017, with Walsh and Jackson advancing into a November runoff election.[4] In the November election, Walsh secured a landslide victory, winning by a two-to-one margin.[5] A total of 109,034[6] of the city's approximately 392,000 registered voters[7] cast a ballot in the November election. The voter turnout of 27.80%[6] was down ten percentage points from the 2013 mayoral election, which generated more excitement as the first Boston mayoral race in a generation without an incumbent.[7]


By October 2017, ten of the 13 Boston City Council members endorsed Walsh for re-election. Ayanna Pressley remained neutral due to her husband being employed by the mayor, and Andrea Campbell declined to comment on her preference.[8]

The Boston Globe editorial board endorsed Walsh for a second time, citing his excellence in handling housing and the city's vibrancy during this first term.[9] The Boston Herald editorial board also endorsed Walsh, saying the newspaper was wrong not to give their endorsement to Walsh in 2013.[10]


Walsh led in polls by substantial margins. An Emerson College Polling Society survey in a September poll of likely voters found Walsh at 52%, Jackson at 21%, Cappucci at 7%, and Wiley at 5%.[11] A Suffolk University/Boston Globe poll in June 2017 found Walsh with a 31-point lead.[12]


Notes: all candidates are nonpartisan, 0.66% of votes in the general election were write-ins.
