Common Cause Massachusetts Testimony in Support of H. 600 and S. 324; Secure Voting Equipment and Paper Ballots

May 15, 2013

This Common Cause Massachusetts testimony begins, 'Presently, Massachusetts law does not require the use of paper ballots. Although every precinct in the Commonwealth currently uses paper ballots, H. 600 and S. 324 would require all elections to be conducted using voter-verifiable paper ballots. The ability of a voter to verify his or her vote on a paper ballot is important to ensuring the reliability and integrity of our electoral system.'

Common Cause Massachusetts: Testimony in Opposition of H. 596 and H. 652

May 15, 2013

Two bills, H. 596 and H. 652, propose altering the allocation of Massachusetts? electoral votes in the 2016 presidential election and beyond. Currently Massachusetts has a "winner-take-all system", meaning the candidate who receives the most votes in the state wins all 11 of our state's electoral votes. H. 596 and H. 652 would change this system to a congressional district allocation of electors, meaning that the winner of each congressional district gets one electoral vote and the winner of the entire state receives two electoral votes.
