Upton wins ‘Best Voting Community’

The small town of Upton won this year’s title of “Best Voting Community” in a biennial contest conceived eight years ago by former state senator Louis Bertonazzi as a friendly competition to try to spur voter participation.

The competition among the 19 south-central Massachusetts communities that were represented by the Milford Democrat on Beacon Hill offers a prize of $1,000, a banner, and a plaque to the town with the highest percentage of votes cast during a two-year period in local elections, primaries, and state and national contests.
