Ayanna’s world – low turnout shapes races – Romney now having to help chief rivals remember policies – Warren picks campaign manager

AFTERMATH: Less than two days after her come-from-behind win to retain her seat on the Boston City Council, the Boston Herald gives Ayanna Pressley’s mayoral prospects the kiss of death. The Globe’s take.

TURNOUT: Low turnout was another election day subplot. Quincy, Springfield and Worcester all had tragically low numbers of voters. But Attleboro‘s up a little!
