FRAMINGHAM - The preliminary election for the District 9 Framingham City Council seat will be held Tuesday, September 19.

A trio of names will be on the ballot, and the two candidates with the most votes will move on to the general election in November for the chance to represented the portion of Framingham's south side. Incumbent City Councilor Tracey Bryant is looking to secure her third term this fall, while Albert Chimeno and Jose Ferreira will also appear before voters.

The preliminary election has a unique wrinkle to it, as Ferreira announced his intention to stop actively campaigning for the role last month. The development came too late for city election officials to remove him from the ballot, so voters on Tuesday will still have the opportunity to select Ferreira. Ferreira reiterated his stance in a social media video posted on Monday, September 18, though he added that he would serve as City Councilor if the community eventually elects him.

Polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. at Harmony Grove Elementary School along Leland Street. Only registered voters from precincts 1, 2, and 3 will be able to cast their ballots.
