LWVN Voters’ Guide: VOTE411.org is here!

At last! LWVN’s Voters’ Guide is available by visiting www.VOTE411.org!  Add your address on the first page, then click on the GREEN button, and you’ll have candidates’ answers to each of three questions.  You can compare the responses of two candidates side-by-side.  ALL candidates for office, whether in contested or uncontested races, were invited to participate. Answers were limited to 500 characters (about 100 words).

Many thanks to the candidates for their time, and to LWVMA Executive Direction and LWVN Member Meryl Kessler for her help with the technology. [Read more…]

LWVMA Day on the Hill on October 24th

Make the League’s voice loud on Beacon Hill. Join us Tuesday, Oct. 24, for the annual LWVMA lobby day, Day on the Hill. Our theme this year is Moving the Needle on League Priorities, and we’ll be focusing on key legislation in voting, the environment, immigration and criminal justice reform. Keynote speakers are Rep. Patricia Haddad, speaker pro tempore in the House, and Sen. Cynthia Creem, assistant majority leader in the Senate. Registration and coffee begins at 9:30 a.m. in the Great Hall of the State House, with the program from 10 a.m. to noon. We’ll offer a brief tutorial on how to lobby before you go see your own legislators after the program. Register here for Day on the Hill. Your presence boosts the League’s clout!

LWVN members will be having lunch with members of our Beacon Hill delegation after the program–let us know if you can join us!  RSVP at info@lwvnewton.org so we can be sure to order enough.
