The towns of Franklin County, typically busy with local elections and town meetings this time of year, are doing what they can to preserve democracy and maintain the safety of their residents. Please check our list here for information regarding your town.

The Massachusetts Senate will vote in a few days on the bill for changes in the fall elections in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. That bill passed the House June 4 and is now numbered  H.4778 , An Act relative to voting options in response to COVID-19. This is a strong bill and we hope the Senate passes it so it can go quickly to the Governor. The sooner this bill is signed into law, the sooner our election officials can take the steps needed to assure our fall elections are safer and more accessible.

Please call or email your State Senator today and ask for their support of H.4778. Click here for more info.
