YES ON 1:
MassVOTE is proud to endorse the YES on 1 campaign, concerning safe patient limits for nurses in the Commonwealth. As an organization dedicated to empowering historically disenfranchised communities, a YES vote will aid in affordability and improve quality access to low-income communities. The Patient Safety Act will better equip Massachusetts nurses to be able to deliver safe and high-quality care.
YES ON 2:
MassVOTE encourages Massachusetts residents to vote YES on 2. A YES vote will create a Citizens Commission to investigate and report the disastrous effects of Citizens United and similar court cases have had on our political discourse. For too long corporations and other special interests have been able to influence the legislative process. These special interests have continuously been committed to policies that are detrimental to working class people and communities of color. A YES vote provides a step in the right direction toward improved transparency on Beacon Hill.
YES ON 3:
MassVOTE has been and will continue to be a staunch ally for the LGBTQ+ community in Massachusetts. MassVOTE is fiercely devoted to inclusiveness and to enabling citizens to be able to participate in our democracy with limited barriers. As an extension of the Civil Rights Act of 1965 MassVOTE proudly endorses a YES vote on 3.
