Activating the Massachusetts Electorate
Monday, October 22, 2018, 6:30 PM
The Institute and WBUR gathered local political organizers, data experts and advocacy organizations for a conversation about how we can activate and expand the Massachusetts electorate. The program reflected on the results of September’s primaries, discussed what we can learn from the methods and efforts that drove new communities of voters to the polls, and analyzed how Massachusetts can make voting easier and more accessible. This was the second of two conversations the Institute and WBUR are partnering on to explore current issues facing the Commonwealth.
