Making Democracy Work

Because democracy is not a spectator sport

The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.

Wednesday, August 27 - State Senate Primary Candidate Forum

The LWV of Needham, Wellesley and Natick are sponsoring a Pre-Primary Candidate Forum with the Democratic candidates for the Norfolk, Bristol and Middlesex District State Senate seat currently held by Senator Richard Ross. Senator Ross is the candidate for the Republican Party and does not have a primary opponent.

The candidate forum will be held at the John Eliot School, 135 Wellesley Avenue, Needham, starting at 7:00 pm with an informal Meet and Greet with the candidates, Dylan Hayre and Sara-Lynn Reynolds.

See the flyer for more information, including how to send questions in advance.

And don't forget to VOTE on Tuesday, September 9, in this statewide Primary Election.

You can now confirm your voter registration status online at the Secretary of State's website.

The LWV-Massachusetts Voters Guide for the candidates for the six statewide offices (Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, Secretary of the Commonwealth, Treasurer and State Auditor) is available on the LWVMA website.
