    In one of the night's races with the biggest impact in the state, eight candidates were vying to fill four at-large Boston City Council seats: incumbents Michael Flaherty, Althea Garrison, Annisa Essaibi George and Michelle Wu as well as David Halbert, Julia Mejia, Erin Murphy and Alejandra Nicole St. Guillen.

    There were five more races in various Boston districts:

    • City Councilor Andrea Joy Campbell of District 4 faced a challenge from Jeff Durham.
    • Ricardo Arroyo and Maria Esdale Farrell competed for District 5.
    • Roy Owens Sr. took on incumbent Kim Janey in District 7.
    • Priscilla Kenzie Bok and Jennifer Ann Nassour were seeking the seat in District 8.
    • Liz Breadon and Craig Cashman vied to represent District 9.

    Boston voters also rejected the non-binding question of whether they support renaming Dudley Square to Nubian Square. More than 54% of the nearly 53,000 voters said the name should not be changed.

    In Worcester, Joseph Petty was re-elected mayor.

    In Fall River, embattled Mayor Jasiel Correia, who is facing multiple charges after two arrests, lost his re-election race to Paul Coogan. He stopped contesting last month when he took leave from his position.

    Additional mayoral races were taking place in Springfield, Somerville and Medford.
