FREDERICK, Md. - In Frederick, the city's more than 66,000 residents can make their voice heard in Tuesday's Primary Election. 

Polls opened at 7 a.m. Tuesday morning and will stay open though 8 p.m. Tuesday evening. 

The City Primary is for the Mayor and Board of Alderman. Six candidates, three Republicans and three Democrats are running for Mayor. 

Organizers say 15 people are running for the five member Board of Aldermen. 

Election officials say the turnout seemed a little slow, but say that's normal for a primary election. 

"I thought the turnout was rather slow. It's been sporadic, but we've had a good turnout, and I understand that we're one of the higher precincts in votes," said Gail Boggs, chief election judge. 

The Frederick Mayor and Board of Aldermen serve four year terms. The general election will be on Tuesday, November 5.
