Polls Open Until 8 p.m. Go Vote!!

BROCKTON—It’s not too late to vote today. Polls are open until 8 p.m
Voters have a choice between incumbent Mayor Linda Balzotti and challenger Ronald Matta.
Matta has attacked the current mayor on the handling of nearly every issue from the water bill debacle to paying Aquaria $5 million a year for water the city doesn’t use.
Balzotti has cited several accomplishments during her 2-year tenure, including balancing the city’s budget without layoffs this year and adding new police foot patrols in the downtown.
Just as a reminder, Gwendolyn Garvin, who was defeated in the mayor’s primary, has said she is running a write-in campaign, however there are scant visible signs the campaign has gained any traction.
On the city council side, voters can choose up to four of five candidates who are battling for four at-large seats on the council.
Newcomer UMass professor Kate Archard is taking on incumbents Robert Sullivan, Thomas Brophy, Jass Stewart and Todd Petti for one of the four councilor-at-large seats.
Ward 3 Councilor Dennis Eaniri is facing competition from Gerald Conefrey for the seat Eaniri has held for several terms.
Also in Ward 3, Anthony Donegan is looking to unseat longtime School Committeewoman Janice Beyer.
On the school side, incumbents James Daley and Richard Bath have not sought reelection and newcomers Michael Healy and Andrew Robinson who are running unopposed are expected to take the two open seats on the committee.
All other seats are unopposed.
