Franklin voters who want to participate in the city’s municipal election on Tuesday, Oct. 26, must be registered by Monday, Sept. 27.
Voters will choose one candidate for their ward of residence and one at-large candidate to serve on the Franklin Board of Mayor and Aldermen. Franklin aldermen have staggered four-year terms, and usually, the mayor and at-large aldermen are on the ballot during one election and ward aldermen two years later. However, a special election is being held this year for the at-large seat left open after the death of Alderman Pearl Bransford last November. John Schroer has filled in on an interim basis since January but is not running for the seat.
Any voter eligible may cast a ballot at any designated convenience vote center location between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. on Election Day, Oct. 26.
Convenience vote center locations include the Cool Springs Conference Center at 700 Cool Springs Blvd., Hunters Bend Elementary at 2121 Fieldstone Parkway, Pearre Creek Elementary School at 1811 Townsend Blvd., First Presbyterian Church at 101 Legends Club Lane, Williamson County Enrichment Center at 110 Everbright Ave., The Church of the City at 828 Murfreesboro Rd., Franklin Christian Church at 4040 Murfreesboro Rd. and Legacy Middle School at 2380 Henpeck Lane.
Early voting will be held from Oct. 6-21 at the Williamson County Election Commission Office, located at 1320 W. Main St., Suite 140, in Franklin. Hours will be 8 a.m.-6 p.m. on weekdays and 8 a.m.-noon on Saturdays.
