Voters will head to the polls in Manchester tomorrow for the city’s primary.

Among the races to be narrowed down will be the city’s mayoral race.

Incumbent Ted Gatsas, a Republican, is seeking a third two-year term.

He is being challenged by Alderman Patrick Arnold, a Democrat, and community activist RJ Ouellette.

Only races with more than two candidates will be on the ballot on Tuesday.

In addition to the mayoral race, voters will narrow down races among alderman and school board candidates in several wards.

Sample ballots can be found on the city clerk's website.

The two candidates to receive the most votes will then face on in the city’s municipal election on Nov. 5. 

Tomorrow's primary also includes a special election to fill a vacant state representative seat.

Republican Ross Terrio and Democrat Mary Heath are running for the seat.
