Get Out The Vote Team News – Municipal Election and Special Election–Nov. 7th

A municipal election is being held TODAY, November 7th in Worcester.  Do you have a plan to vote? Did you already vote?

In Worcester, residents will be electing their Mayor and representatives for the City Council and School Committee.  The polls will be open from 7 AM to 8 PM.  Previously, School Committee representatives all ran as At-Large candidates.  This is the first year that there will be district representatives for the School Committee in addition to two At-Large candidates.  Having school committee districts established should help ensure that the diverse community of Worcester will be represented fairly.

In a Special Election, folks in Worcester and Hampshire Districts who have been represented by Senator Anne Gobi will be choosing who will fill her vacancy for State Senator.  Here is a list of those candidates.

Here is a list of the Worcester municipal election candidates.  This list and additional information, including where to vote, is available at  If you are interested in watching one of the debates held for at-large candidates and contested seats, recordings are available on this website.

Other municipalities may be having elections as well. 

Please spread the word about the importance of voting in this election.  Thank you for making your voice heard and being a voter!
