According to the Pew Research Center, voter enthusiasm is “at its highest level during any midterm in more than two decades.  Check out how the Pioneer Valley, and your community specifically, stack up. Then, make a difference in the next map and in your community by getting out to vote and bringing your friends and family! Polling places are required by law to be open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m., though some towns will open as early as 5:45 a.m. for early morning voters. Any voter who is in line when polls close at 8 p.m. must be allowed to vote. So, get out there on November 6th and help boost our region’s turnout rate while participating in some exciting political races!
