League reminds voters of Oct. 17 deadline
To the editor:
On behalf of the League of Women Voters, I would like to remind people that the deadline to register to vote in Massachusetts is Oct. 17. If you have moved in the past year you need to re-register and if you are turning 18 by Nov. 6, you can and should register. And it’s easy! The LWV of Amherst will have voter registration on the Amherst Common on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., or you can register in the town clerk’s office in the Amherst Town Hall.
You can also download a registration form online from the Massachusetts Secretary of State and send it to the town clerk’s office. I would also like to call attention to several local ballot questions in this area, in addition to the statewide ballot questions. For a description of the state ballot questions you can go to the Massachusetts Secretary of State’s website and for the local ballot questions you can go to the Amherst League’s website: www.LWVAmherst.org.
