FRAMINGHAM – City of Framingham Clerk Lisa Ferguson requested the 2021 preliminary election date be changed from September 21 to September 14, due to a Jewish holiday.

The Charter states a a “preliminary election for the purpose of nominating candidates be held on the third Tuesday in September in every odd-numbered year,” but September 21 is Sukkot, a Jewish holy day.

The Framingham City Council unanimously approved the change Tuesday night 11-0.

In November 2021, Framingham voters will elect a Mayor for 4 years, 9 district City Councilors, and 9 School Committee members, along with a couple of other office holders.

The first Tuesday in November 2021 is Nov. 2.

The preliminary election will now be held on September 14.
