Franklin Election Collection - 2021

This will collect all the posts with information on the Franklin Town Election scheduled for Nov 2, 2021. The most recent items will be on the top of the list with the older items below.

While are called the "Town of Franklin", we operate as a city form of government with a Council, an Administrator hired by the Council to manage the town operations, and a School Committee which hires a Superintendent to manage the school district operations. 

Every two years, the entire Town Council (9 positions) and School Committee (7 positions) are up for election. There are other elected positions that have staggered terms so some of them are available every two years. 

The Town Clerk is normally elected every four years, but with Nancy Danello taking on the role as "acting Town Clerk" when Teresa Burr resigned, the position is up for election this year.

All precincts vote in one location, Franklin High School. The precincts are used to balance the voter numbers across the town and are set at the State level. Our State Senate representation is split between two districts while we have a Representative in the House that covers the town and a few precincts in Medway.
