Greetings from Boston’s Ward19 democratic committee!
We are excited to invite you to our monthly meeting on March 4th
at 7:00 PM
for a panel discussion on voter rights and transparency
. The meeting will be held at Farnsworth House
on 90 South Street in JP.
Our panelists are two JP residents and voter rights’ activists:
- Pam Wilmot, Executive Director of Common Cause Massachusetts
- Martha Karchere, Speaker for Voter Choice Massachusetts
We will hear from Pat and Martha about important legislation making its way through the Massachusetts legislature, including a bill proposed by JP Rep. Liz Malia and co-sponsored by JP Rep. Nika Elugardo on election day voter registration.
The strength of our democracy is measured by whether voters have full access to the ballot box and by the processes that govern our elected officials. At a time when the integrity of elections is at risk across the nation by voter suppression, gerrymandering, and foreign interference, we want to make sure Massachusetts is leading the way in pro-voter policies and practices. We took a significant step forward last session with the passage of automatic voter registration, but we are still behind the curve as seen in this report by the Center for American Progress, https://ampr.gs/2EMxeAq
The public is invited AND encouraged to attend!
