The Presidential Election will be held on Tuesday, November 3, 2020. The polls are open 7 a.m. – 8 p.m. Voters will be required to wear a face covering and maintain social distancing in the polling location.
VOTING IN-PERSON – WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW AND BRING:
Please DO NOT go to the POLLS if you have COVID-19, are feeling sick, or waiting for COVID-19 test results. Please call the City Clerk’s Office at 508-532-5520 for voting options from home. • Wear a Face Covering - Per Governor Baker’s Order and the City of Framingham’s Emergency Order, face coverings will be required to enter or use any City facilities. • Voters can bring their own pen– Blue or Black ink – Sharpie or Paper Mate Flair recommended (machines will not read red ink/highlighters; pencil/crayons cause issues with tabulator breakdowns). • Bring an ID – in some cases, voters will be required to show an ID. That ID can be anything (license, a bill, email), but the voter name and address must match how you are registered. • Don’t touch your face • Maintain Social Distancing – keep a distance of at least 6’ from others • Keep your ballot dry and free from hand sanitizers - Do not use hand sanitizer while handling your ballot and be sure your voting booth is dry as it will cause issues for the ballot tabulator.
