The Mayor makes a case to vote in the upcoming local election.

For those who don't subscribe to the Mayor's news letter.

Greetings Neighbors!

It's almost election time! Have you registered to vote? The deadline to register is Aug. 28. The City of Framingham respects the right to vote as a fundamental civil right and assures that all elections are conducted in a fair and open manner providing equal access to all.

Offices to appear on the November Election Ballot are noted here.

Check out the list of candidates for the preliminary election Sept. 17 and the City Election Nov. 5.

I take the right to vote very seriously. My mother Dorothy instilled the importance of voting upon me and my siblings. She was an election poll worker for many years. She reminded us that people died for my right to vote and to squander it was foolhardy. I cast my first vote shortly after I turned 18. I never doubted that my vote could make a difference and neither should you!

You can check out your registered voter status and polling location here.

Didn't we hear that the Mayor hadn't voted in local elections in 10 years, when she ran for Mayor?

Guess she did not listen to what her mother said

What a piece of cake our mayor is. Did she think we all forget about her past voting record? And if we did, then she should also assume we forgot about her last opponent's record and that they both now have clean slates which could lead to an interesting election season in 2021.

What a joke this is. I am infuriated that she thinks we all forgot about her failure to vote for many, many year. I would expect her mother is turning over in her grave.

Disappointed in the mayor on this one. It’s typical politician do as I say not as I do. Spicer stay away from that path. There are plenty of other politicians in the city already we don’t need another one.

Hey Jim, glad to see the League is having a preliminary forum. Although not great that the League wants to keep a candidate for office in its masthead.
