Common Cause Massachusetts: Testimony in Support of S. 317

May 15, 2013

Testimony in Support of S. 317 which begins, 'The voting age has been 18 in every state since 1970, when former president Richard Nixon signed an extension of the Voting Rights Act. Now, over 40 years later, teens in Lowell are attempting to change the law to allow 17-year-old voters to cast ballots in municipal elections. If passed, Lowell would be the second city in the nation to lower the voting age, following Tacoma Park, Maryland that passed a similar measure on May 14, 2013.'

Common Cause Lauds Virginia Decision to Retire Vulnerable Voting Machines Before November Elections

September 8, 2017

The Virginia State Board of Elections voted this afternoon to retire voting machines that have been identified as vulnerable to manipulation and tampering and will shift to the use of paper ballots statewide before the November election. Common Cause and other groups had urged the board to retire the Direct Recording Electronic (DRE) voting machines, before the upcoming election because they do not produce a durable paper record of votes. Computer scientists have long advised that paper ballots should be used for voting because they are not digital and therefore cannot be altered by malware.
