Cohn Urges Immediate Action on Three Critical Election Amendments

 

Writing for The Action Network, Ward 4 Chair Jonathan Cohn calls for support of a bill that will protect our September and November elections during pandemic times and beyond. The vote in the Massachusetts House is happening today, June 3rd. Cohn writes, “The bill has some good parts, like making it easier to vote by mail and expanding early voting. But it does not go nearly far enough to protect every eligible voter’s right to participate in our democracy while protecting public health.” However, three critical amendments will address the bill’s shortcomings. Contacting your state rep will help build the support needed to pass the bill and the amendments—and “pandemic-proof” our elections.
