Boston votes for next mayor

Mayoral candidates Martin J. Walsh and John R. Connolly traversed the city this afternoon in a last-minute hunt for holdout voters, both expressing confidence they would win the first open mayoral race in a generation.

Turnout was brisk at many polling stations. As of 6 p.m., 113,677 people, or nearly 31 percent of those registered, had voted, according to city figures. Turnout was up, compared with the same point during the September preliminary election, when only about 23 percent had voted.
