Ballot Questions

There are four questions on the State Ballot in November. The League takes no position on questions 1 through 3;however LWV-MA and the Plymouth League  strongly support and endorse Question 4. Eligibility for Driver’s Licences. 

A YES vote will ensure that all qualified state residents, regardless of immigration status, can continue to apply for a standard driver’s license.

LWV-MA is an active participant in the coalition Yes on 4 For Safer Roads.

Voting Rights

Voter Education

Charter Commission Releases Draft Charter for Plymouth

The Plymouth Charter Commission has been meeting monthly (and often more frequently) since August, 2021. They have released a draft charter, to be voted on at Town Elections in the Spring of 2023. Published in the Old Colony Memorial on September 15, the draft is available on the Town Web Site here.

LWV Plymouth’s Observer Corps has attended the meetings and has published its reports on each meeting on our page Charter Commission Notes and Resources.

What A Difference A DA Makes!

Your ballots this fall (Primary and State Election) include candidates for Plymouth District Attorney (DA). Even though district attorneys have an enormous amount of power over the lives of their constituents, four-in-ten Massachusetts voters don’t know that DAs are elected and answer only to voters. Help close the gap by making sure your neighbors know what’s at stake this fall.

The League of Women Voters is a nonpartisan political organization encouraging informed and active participation in government. It influences public policy through education and advocacy.
