Voter history for Franklin local elections 2003 - 2011

What kind of turn out will the voters make on Tuesday? If history is any guide, it will be low.

Franklin Election History 2003 - 2011
Franklin Election History 2003 - 2011
The elections of 2005, 2009 and this year 2013 are comparable. The elections of 2003, 2007, and 2011 are also comparable. The difference between the two sets is that the Town Clerk and Treasurer/Collector are up for election in the later set (2003, 2007 and 2011) and with their election on the ballot there has shown a growth in voter turn out.

With this this election excluding those positions, it will likely be in the 15-18% range. I would hope it would be more like 2011 given the ballot questions: one binding to change the Treasurer/Collector to an appointed position and one non-binding to consider a mayor. We'll see what happens on Tuesday
