The League of Women Voters..Framingham

Since 2002 or so, voter participation has dropped in local elections. Blame it on voter apathy or a lack of publicity or not enough candidates or your own opinion. But what ever the excuse, we need to change that. We have decided to start a League of Women Voters chapter here in Framingham. Our first meeting will be at the  McAuliffe Library on May 21st, from 2 to 3:30 PM. All are welcome.
As of now, there are a bunch of candidates for Mayor, which if they get enough signatures, will force a primary in September. Then the general election in November.
The Framigham Chapter will sponsor debates in a non partisan way in places that can facilitate broader voter participation. We will organize on the 21st.
