It’s finally upon us, the day we’ve been aching for so we can put all the ads, spin, punditry and sound bites behind us, for better or worse. The sample ballot below is courtesy of the Herald News. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
In addition to working with local Senate and Representative campaigns, members of Occupy Fall River have worked hard on two ballot initiatives. These are Fall River/Somerset ballot Question 4 - the Community Preservation Act – and Bristol Representative District 7 ballot Question 5 – the Budget For All. We hope people will vote ‘YES’ on these questions that are aimed to better our community.
FYI, Massachusetts voters can retrieve all relevant information including polling places and sample ballots by filling out their address on this page. Fall River and Somerset voters, who are able to vote on the CPA, can scroll down on their results page to read ballot Question 4.
Along with Raynham, Bridgewater and 88 other cities and towns across the state, Fall River residents in Bristol Representative District 7 (much of Fall River’s south end) will find Question 5, the Budget For All, on their ballots in that part of Fall River. The wording of the Budget For All is available here.
