And, Outside Boston...

Tomorrow's Boston city elections have gotten the bulk of the attention from the Bay State's Boston-centric media, including yours truly. But there are more than 50 towns and cities voting tomorrow, with quite a few interesting races, for mayor, council, school committee, and so on, as well as some charter changes and other fun stuff.

From my perspective, the most interesting are the mayoral races. There are a bunch of open seats, including (if I've got this right) Beverly, Fall River, Malden, Methuen, New Beford, North Adams, Northampton, Peabody, Pittsfield, Revere, West Springfield, and Worcester.

In addition, some incumbent mayors -- including a bunch newly elected two years ago -- are facing serious challenges. Some of the challenged incumbents include those in Agawam, Braintree, Brockton, Chicopee, Easthampton, Fitchburg, Holyoke, Lynn, Quincy, Springfield, Waltham, and Weymouth.

So tell me: which incumbents do you think will be defeated? Who do you think will win -- or hope will win -- in those open races? And what have I missed, or glossed over, worth keeping an eye on tomorrow?
