Excitement for Election Day in Franklin County

Presidential race, statewide questions, and senate race all on the ballot

GREENFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Voters across the country are at the polls, participating in the last few hours of this presidential election. In Franklin County, Greenfield residents are all voting at Greenfield High School.

Just like in the rest of the state, Greenfield voters are deciding on the presidential race and the four ballot questions. Greenfield voters also have a state senate race to consider.

Senate President Stanley Rosenberg (D-Amherst) is running for re-election to his seat in the Hampshire, Franklin, and Worcester District. He is being challenged by South Hadley Republican Donald Peltier.

The district covers central and eastern portions of Franklin County, including Greenfield, Deerfield, Orange, Gill, and Bernardston. It also includes much of central and eastern Hampshire County, plus the Worcester County town of Royalston.

Whether it was their very first or their seventh time voting, Greenfield residents told 22News that they enjoy coming out to vote every year.

“There’s a lot of underlying issues with the country right now, so I find it was imperative to come out and vote,” Sean Connors of Greenfield said.

“It’s only been a few elections that I have been participating in, so it’s still exciting every time. I get to have a say!” April Jones of Greenfield said.

If you still have not voted, you have until 8:00 before the polls close.

22News will have all the results from the national and local elections, as well as the statewide ballot questions, here on WWLP.com and on 22News tonight at 10 and 11.
