Regardless of today’s vote total or eventual outcome, Election 2020 will impact the United States for the next four years, or perhaps longer.
The Bedford Citizen urges all of our readers to cast their ballot for the candidates of their choice. A full and fair vote is the bedrock of American democracy. Once you’ve voted, several Bedford organizations and have planned activities today and tomorrow.

Beginning at 7 am, First Parish on Bedford Common plans to follow a plan to ring the meeting-house bell on the hour until 8 pm. If you would like to participate, call the church at 781-275-7994, to learn more.
Live Stream Kids’ Music
In the middle of the morning, Sarah Gardner will return to the Bedford Free Public Library’s Zoom link with music, dancing, and lots of fun for young children. It’s the kickoff for a new video series that offers a musical program on the first and third Tuesday of each month.

Order In, to Benefit the MSPA
Too wrapped up to cook? The Middle School Parents Association has booked their Flatbread fundraiser from 3:30 to 9 pm for dining in (patio/inside) or take out. Call ahead for pick-up, or order and Flatbread in Bedford will donate for each pizza ordered!

Protest Election Interference, if needed
First Parish announced tentative plans to hold a Protect the Vote Stand Out gathering on Bedford Common from 3:30 until 4 pm on Wednesday afternoon. Bedford’s gathering will coincide with the larger events planned for Boston and other locations around the Commonwealth if apparent election interference is taking place around the country. Masks and social distancing will be required. Final plans will be announced on social media at noon on Wednesday.
But, most of all, make your voice heard and VOTE!
