FRAMINGHAM – Polls closed at 8 p.m.
City Clerk Lisa Ferguson told SOURCE local unofficial results may not be available until late tonight.
The City of Framingham has more than 40,000 registered voters, and about 10,000 voted in person today. About 30,000 mail-in ballots were requested.
“I am merging unofficial results from the polling locations and advanced processing along with the hand counts. It depends on how long it takes the election workers to close,” said Ferguson. “Hope to be done with unofficial results by midnight.”
Besides how Framingham voted in the Presidential, senate and congressional races, among others, many are interested in ballot question #3, which was a Framingham ballot question on the Community Preservation Act.
Ferguson said any ballots that are received by the post office between 8:01 p.m. tonight and 5:00 p.m. on November 6, that were postmarked on or before election day will have to be added as well as any provisional ballots, explained Ferguson.
Overseas ballots and military ballots that are postmarked on or before Election Day have to be received by5 p.m.on November 13, said Ferguson.
After that is done, the results can be made official. Certification of votes is due with the Secretary of Commonwealth on November 18, said Ferguson.
