Town Election Candidate Updated List

ballot-header-2016-nonamesyet

Many candidates have now pulled nomination papers for the upcoming Town Election, but a few offices still have no candidates. Selectmen and Town Clerk are now contested races. 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 28; or a person may qualify by being the top vote-getter in one of the town political party caucuses.  The dates of the Democratic and Republican Caucuses have not yet been announced, but are usually held in early April at Town Hall.
