This election become a Super Voter

More Info

To the Editor:
Are you a Super Voter? This is a person who votes in all elections, even those that occur when there is not a presidential election. I wish to encourage all of us to be Super Voters. The up-coming Massachusetts primary Tuesday, September 4th will be our chance to vote for a Berkshire County district attorney, gubernatorial candidates, senators, representatives and more. Primary registration deadline is August 15, absentee ballots due by August 31. Remember you are entitled to vote in primaries even if unaffiliated with a particular political party.

Some of the issues I support are healthcare for all including protecting people with pre-existing conditions, a clean environment, student debt relief, a humane immigration policy, and a $15 an hour minimum wage. Find out more at sec.state.ma.us. If you haven’t already, make a plan when you will vote. Consider going with friends and family and assisting those who may need some extra help getting to the polls.

Your vote matters; let’s make a difference.

    Nothing is more important in this country at this time than actively participating in our democracy by voting in all elections.

    I’d like to add that voting on 9/4 means voting the day after Laborday! If you will be out of town, go to your town hall now and vote absentee, the ballots are in—get ‘er done!
