Vote Monday – New School and Parks & Rec Facility

All Hopkinton precincts vote at the Middle School. Polls are open 7:00am-8:00pm on Monday, November 9. There are two debt-exclusion ballot questions. Although voters at the October 26 Special Town Meeting voted to borrow money for both the new school and the parks and recreation facility in order for the projects to go forward, the voters must also pass a debt exclusion at the ballot under proposition 2 1/2 to authorize a temporary increase in the Town’s levy limit to cover the cost of borrowing for these two projects.
