This was the first Boston mayoral election held under a new city charter, which made the election nonpartisan, and increased the mayor's term from two years to four years. Due to November voting on the charter change, this election was held in January, with the term of the incumbent mayor extended into February.
Fitzgerald was inaugurated on Monday, February 7.
