    GOTV – Get Out The Vote!

    We cannot stress how important it is to vote this Tuesday, November 4th!

    To find out where to vote: http://www.wheredoivotema.com/bal/myelectioninfo.aspx

    Make time to become an informed voter!

    Many important election races and four very important ballot questions are YOURS to decide!

    It is equally important to encourage others you know- your family, friends, neighbors and your co-workers – to vote. Reaching out to encourage others to vote (or getting them to the polls) have very high success rates in getting people to vote!

    Please make the effort to encourage others to GOTV!

    Listed below are MALC blog posts from its Get Your Vote On! series that may be helpful in learning about those running for office and the ballot questions. MALC does not endorse candidates for office and does not MALC take positions on the statewide ballot questions.

    Please read and share this post with others!

    See You at the Voting Polls on Tuesday, November 4th!

    MALC was founded in July 2008 to bring together artists leaders of all disciplines and artist(s) run organizations, initiatives, and businesses around key issues facing Massachusetts artists working in all disciplines. MALC is committed to improving the social and economic position of all Massachusetts artists. The overall goal is to empower our community, support our artists leaders, and mentor new artist leaders. We want to ensure that artists are at the policy making table. MALC is the artist working group for our state’s Creative Economy Council (CEC). MALC does not endorse candidates for office and does not MALC take positions on the statewide ballot questions.

    MALC does feel strongly that any candidate seeking to be Governor needs to have a specific policy platform for our sector.
