Why is Framingham voting?

On April 4, voters approved a ballot question to make the Town a City. Now we need to elect the officials who will run our city.  The September 26 election is a preliminary election, the aim of which is to narrow the field down for each category in the final election on November 7. 


Who will Framingham be voting for on Tuesday, September 26, 2017?

Voters will be narrowing the field of candidates for the Mayor, At-Large City Council and some District Council races.
