As the parent of a young child, you may have wished for quiet. As the parent of a teen, you will probably get what you wished for.

~They are naturally separating from you. Keeping some private thoughts is an important part of the journey toward becoming an adult.

In Hopkinton, we are one of the few towns that have partisan town elections. That means that on the ballot you will see the name of the party that a candidate belongs to and whether that candidate was nominated by their party’s caucus. Having partisan elections usually means that we have more contested races than surrounding towns with non-partisan elections. The two parties work to recruit and elect candidates for local offices. Historically Hopkinton has a larger turn out for local elections than surrounding towns.
