The preliminary City Council election for District 7 will be held Sept. 27. Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
In that race, the only preliminary vote being held in JP this year, incumbent Tito Jackson is facing three challengers, Althea Garrison, Roy Owens and Sheneal Parker.
District 7 is mostly based in Roxbury, but includes part of Egleston Square. The other city councilors who represent JP—District 6 Councilor Matt O’Malley, who represents most of the neighborhood, and District 8 Councilor Mike Ross, who represents part of Hyde Square—are running unopposed this year. That means no preliminary will be held in either of those districts.
There is also no preliminary election for the four citywide at-large City Council seats this year. At-large preliminaries are triggered if eight or more candidates run, but only seven are running this year.
The final election, which will pit the two highest vote-getters in district 7 against each other and decide the other council races, will be held Nov. 8.
