Please Read, Take Action and Forward
Tomorrow, Massachusetts voters go to the polls to choose Democratic and Republican nominees for statewide and legislative offices.
While nearly everyone here is focused on the gubernatorial election (and the two top Democrats are perfect on marriage equality), we at MassEquality have
been working relentlessly on state legislative elections.
Our priorities are 1) re-electing our legislative allies, and 2) filling open seats with pro-equality legislators. Eight of our allies in the legislature
are facing primary opponents, and there are 13 open seats with primaries (nine currently held by anti-equality legislators). If we succeed in meeting our
goals, we'll have new momentum in the State House when legislators vote later this year on a proposed constitutional amendment to ban same-sex marriage.
And we'll have an even larger pro-equality legislative majority next year should we face this ban again.
To prepare for these elections, we have polled, completed more than 4,500 voter identification calls and more than 6,000 get-out-the-vote calls, created
for our members priority lists of candidates for funding support, and sent more than 250,000 pieces of mail. Tomorrow, MassEquality staff and volunteers
will be out working the polls for pro-equality candidates around the state.
As soon as we have results, we will share them with you. Here's to terrific successes!
