Photos: Election 2015 From the Front Lines

A balmy November day wasn’t enough to draw more than 14 percent of eligible voters to the polls Tuesday for Boston’s city elections.

In Jamaica Plain, voting was quiet in the morning at Egleston Square, Amory Apartments and English High School. The only candidate volunteers were at Woodbourne Apartments in Wards 19 in Precincts 17 and 12, one of the battlegrounds for the very tight District 4 City Council race.

In the evening, voting attendance was busier at the Margarita Munoz Academy (formerly the Agassiz School) on Child Street (Wards 11 -9 and 19 -8). At Egleston Square, Amory Street and Woodbourne, campaign signs covered fences and light poles.
