Primary March 5 for Peabody State Rep Race

The deadline is Feb. 13 to register to vote, change political party status or your voter address in time for the Peabody State Representative primary in March.

There's just under a month left until the primary in the race to elect a new state representative for Peabody. A special election was called in January in the wake of Joyce Spiliotis' death.

The highlight for March 5 will be who emerges victorious on the Republican ballot -- Greg Bunn or Leah Cole -- and goes on to face Democrat Beverley Griffin Dunne and independent candidate Dave Gravel on April 2.

The City Clerk's office is also reminding voters they have until Feb. 13 at 8 p.m. to stop by the clerk's office to register to vote in the primary, change political party status or their voter address. Voters who are registered from this past fall's election are all set.

Absentee ballots are now available at the clerk's office for voters who can't make it to the polls.

The 12th Essex District covers most of the city, which means every polling site in Peabody, except for Ward 5 Precinct 2 and all of Ward 6, will be open from 7 a.m. - 8 p.m. on March 5 for the primary.

City Clerk Tim Spanos says the ballots will be as follows:

Democrat Ballot Beverley A. Griffin Dunne 10 Colfax Street Republican Ballot Gregory S. Bunn 44 Trask Road Leah Cole 369 Lynnfield Street

Spanos said Gravel, who is unenrolled, will not appear on this ballot because the preliminary election is only for party candidates.
