NEW BEDFORD – The special election to fill the Ward Three vacancy is Tuesday in New Bedford.

The winner of the election will complete the term that had been awarded to Henry Bousquet before he stepped down earlier this year.

Election Commissioner Maria Tomasia says even though the winner of Tuesday’s election is serving for less than a year, they can get a head start on the next campaign if they wish. “New nomination papers for the 2017 election are coming up in May. Nomination papers will be out on the 22nd. And they can start again if they want to run for the next two years,” says Tomasia.

Absentee voting for Ward Three residents is available in City Hall from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Saturday and Monday, with polls opening from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday.

Tomasia is hoping for a 15% voter turnout in the election between Hugh Dunn and Bethany Fauteux.
