SOUTHBRIDGE — This year's election only has one official contest, with nine people seeking three seats on the Town Council, but observers predict write-in candidates will likely make their interest in the vacant School Committee seat known. Incumbent Mary Ellen Prencipe declined to seek reelection, and the only other candidate to return papers, Roger Reopel, opted to withdraw last week for health reasons. Other races have incumbents seeking re-election without opposition except the Redevelopment Authority, where Michael Checkosky declined to seek reelection.

The Southbridge Evening News will be running profiles of the council candidates starting June 8 and is planning a debate among them for later this month. Election Day is June 29, with polls open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m., but this year, one of the polling places has changed. Precinct 5, formerly at Casaubon Center, will now vote at the Armory on Chestnut Street with Precincts 1,3,and 4. Precinct 2, however, remains at West Street School. The deadline to register to vote is Wednesday, June 9, when the Town Clerk's office will stay open late, until 8 p.m.
