FRAMINGHAM – A majority of the six, new retail marijuana stores will be in District 4.

Voters who live in District 4, comprised of Precincts 6 and 9, have uncontested races for District City Council and District School Committee on Tuesday, November 5. But voters will have a say in the two at-large City Council races for 4-year terms.

The polls will be open on Tuesday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Those in Precinct 9 vote at the Wesley Church on Beacon Street.

Those who vote in Precinct 6 vote at the Walsh Middle School.

Framingham Public Schools are closed to students on Tuesday. Staff and teachers have a professional development day.

Voters have three names on the ballot for at-large City Council.

Two will be elected to 4-year terms.

On the ballot is Councilor George P. King. Jr., Housing Authority member Janet Leombruno, and School Committee member Gloria Pascual.

Below is the voting record for the last 5 years, for the three city-wide Council candidates.

Editor’s Note: King and Leombruno could NOT vote in September 2019, as their Precinct did not have an election.
