Fall 2002 Elections
Primary Elections Tuesday, September 17th
Below is a list of the candidates for the State Legislature for those districts that are within Newton. I gleaned this list from the Massachusetts Elections Division's list of State Primary Candidates; if you spot a mistake, please let me know.
After installing this page on the website, I was informed that my State Representative District information was out of date. I am indebted to Danny Fain, who sent me the latest State of Massachussetts listing of Representative Districts (never mind that the state's website also has the previous list still up -- and neither list is dated!), and to the Newton League of Women Voters, whose list arrived in my e-mailbox at the same time.
The City of Newton website provides a list of polling locations. To find out in which Ward and Precinct you reside, you can call the Elections Commission at (617) 796-1350, or find your address in the commission's street listing (you'll need Adobe Acrobat to read this file).
Where I have been able to find a web site for these candidates, I am providing it. If you know of a relevant web site not listed, please send me e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
