Local civic engagement is important, now more than ever. Civic leagues like eHop provide valuable non-biased non-partisan voter information and engagement.

Did you know…

  • 90% of Hopkinton’s registered voters do NOT attend Town Meeting?
  • Voters who have lived in town less than 5 years are significantly less likely to attend Town Meeting?
  • 37% of Hopkinton’s voters have lived in town less than 5 years?

eHop’s annual budget is small, approximately $5,000, and for the last few years we have relied on receiving a Marathon Invitational Entry Bib from the town of Hopkinton as our one major fundraiser of the year. For the 2022-23 year eHop projected expenses of $5,590.00 (View the eHop Budget). On October 11, 2022 the Hopkinton Select Board voted to exclude 501(c)(4) Civic Leagues like eHop from applying for a Marathon Invitational Entry Bib from the town. Read eHop’s Letter to the Select Board about this decision. As a result eHop will either have to come up with another way to raise funds in a hurry or cut its budget drastically this year.
