Boston wasn’t the only city with a preliminary election on Tuesday.

Voters from nine other Massachusetts communities went to the polls, voting to narrow the candidate fields ahead of the final election later this fall.

The outgoing mayors of Brockton, Framingham, Gloucester, Haverhill, Medford, Newton and Salem are all seeking re-election.

Lynn and Somerville, meanwhile, each have open municipal elections.

Voters in several towns and villages were also faced with choices for a handful of other local elections, including in city council and school committee races.

Here are the unofficial election results for each race as provided by local authorities:
