The town's annual election is typically the first Tuesday in the month of April, but in 2013 it was moved to Tuesday, April 9 to accommodate the Jewish holiday of Passover.
Other positions on the 2013 ballot include moderator, four Framingham Library Trustee seats, three regional vocational school committee seats, two seats on the Framingham Planning Board, one seat on the Framingham Housing Authority and one Edgell Grove Cemetery Trustee position.
Four Town Meeting members in each of the 18 precincts are up for re-election in 2013, as well as some precincts have open seats due to resignations, etc.
