Statement on the Report of Voting Age Bills

This past Month the legislature sent our bills to study out of committee, effectively ending their chances of passing in the current legislative session. While we are disappointed, we are heartened by the signs of  other towns and cities around Massachusetts and the country taking up this issue. We remain committed to seeing the wishes of the towns realized, and the municipal voting age lowered here in Western Massachusetts. We hope you will join us as we continue our campaign, and are excited as we are about the broader movement that looks to be forming around lowering the municipal voting age. Be on the lookout for upcoming updates on exciting new campaigns to lower the voting age, both here and around the country!
