#BosMayor Round-Up: Nov. 5, 2013

Today is Election Day. Polls are open 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. at 150 locations across the city. The front pages of the Boston Herald and the Globe are available here. The weather forecast for today is "mostly sunny" with highs in mid-40s, according to Boston.com. Paul McMorrow previews the race in a must-read over at Time magazine: "The race for Boston mayor has become a chippy, intensely personal affair that’s breaking along cultural and class fault lines, and fueled by an unprecedented influx of outside super PAC money."
