Commentary on voter turnout based upon historical data from Franklin's elections from 2003 through 2013

To help prepare to vote on the ballot questions for the state wide election on November 4th, these links bring in one place all that has been published here regarding the specific questions. (As I find anything else worthy to add as the election approaches, I'll also include the links here.)

I put together a ballot question cheat sheet. You can print it out, make notes on it, mark you choice and bring it with you to the poll on Tuesday

Ballot Question 1 (state wide question on elimination of gas tax indexing)

Ballot Question 2 (state wide question on expanding the beverage container law)

Ballot Question 3 (state wide question on expanding the prohibitions on gaming)

Ballot Question 4 (state wide question on earned sick time for employees)

Ballot Question 5 (local to Franklin - dedicated override to fund road repairs)

Ballot Question 6 (local to Franklin - not binding on repealing the Citizens United decision)
