Town Election Candidates to Date


Many candidates have pulled nomination papers already for the upcoming Town Election, but some offices still have no candidates. To become a candidate a person must either obtain and submit nomination papers by securing the signatures of 50 Hopkinton registered voters by Monday, March 30; or a person may qualify by being the top vote getter in one of the town political party caucuses. The Democratic Caucus is Thursday, April 9 at 7:30pm (Town Hall) and the Republican Caucus is Friday, April 10 at 5:00pm (Town Hall).
