The election is Tuesday, Nov. 4 and the race for Governor between candidates Charlie Baker and Martha Coakley (Evan Falchuk and Jeff McCormick are also in the race, but they are trailing by a wide margin in the polls) is going down to the wire. The recent gubernatorial debates have been entertaining as both candidates seek to deliver their message to voters in the final week of the campaign.
It’s been an exciting campaign and Winthrop residents are poised to cast their ballots for Governor and the other statewide offices, along with the Congressional and state representative elections.
Question 3 on the ballot is also generating a lot of interest locally with Winthrop resident John Ribeiro leading a campaign against casino gaming Massachusetts. On Tuesday, voters will have the final say whether there will be casinos in Everett (Wynn Resorts) and Springfield (MGM Resorts) and a slots parlor in Plainville.
Town Clerk Carla Vitale says her office and poll workers are ready for Election Day in Winthrop.
We encourage Winthrop residents to make their voices heard and vote in the election.
