Election Day: How to Vote, What We’re Watching
Today is Election Day in Massachusetts, when Massachusetts voters will pick a new Governor, their representatives in the State House (and in Washington), and four statewide referendums.
While most of these races are not nail-biters, these elected officials will decide the fate of critical state and federal legislation for the next two years – including laws that will determine how (and whether) the state meets its climate goals, laws affecting street safety, and funding for things like low-income fare programs and operations subsidies for regional transit authorities.
The new Governor, in particular, will face high expectations for salvaging the MBTA after of a dismal year of safety issues and service cuts.
