Election Coverage Recap Ahead of Tuesday

Tomorrow — Tuesday, June 20, 2023 — Marblehead voters will head to the polls to cast their ballots for thirteen races and one ballot question. The individuals running for election or reelection in five of the most competitive races were offered the opportunity to answer Marblehead Beacon’s in-depth questions pertaining to their respective campaigns, as were the committees that represent the two sides of Question One. Over the course of the past month, Marblehead Beacon has published all questions presented to the candidates, along with the answers of everyone who engaged, and for each question we offered a rationale and context.  


For those seeking a recap of our coverage, including links to all election-related stories, below is a resource with everything accessible in one place. Additionally, important quotations from all committees and candidates (including quotations gleaned from other sources, particularly in instances in which a candidate declined to answer Marblehead Beacon’s questions) may be seen here
