Election Day is here. We’ve been publishing profiles on all the candidates running for office in the Nov. 7 elections, and are putting those profiles in one place so you can do your last-minute research before hitting the polls.

There are several contested races, including a mayoral challenger to 14-year incumbent Joseph Curtatone. Seven candidates are vying for the Board of Aldermen’s four at-large seats, and Wards 1 through 4 are seeing multiple Board of Aldermen candidates.

Three newcomers are breaking into this year’s School Committee race. Emily Ackman and Kenneth Salvato will vy for the Ward 1 seat, left open by Steven Roix, and Susan McDonald-Nionakis is looking to oust Ward 2 School Committee member Dan Futrell.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.  You can find your voting location here and check your ward and precinct here.
