投票 麻州長、波市長、波市議會議長齊催票

麻州州長查理貝克(Charlie Baker), 波士頓市長馬丁華殊(Martin J. Walsh),波士頓市議會議長吳弭(Michelle Wu)117日,不約而同地發出電子郵件,提醒選民投票。
查理貝克籲請選民出席投票之餘,不忘為了他所支持的議題拉票,包括支持共和黨籍的麻州參、眾議員參選人,支持取消特許學校上限的第二號問題,反對大麻商業化的第四號問題。
馬丁華殊指他父母60年前抱著願景,移民來美,希望選民們支持對當年美國願景抱有同樣信念的候選人。
吳弭提醒選民,只要在今(8)8點前,排進等候投票隊伍,就有資格投票。她指出今年是麻州辦理提早投票的第一年,已經有大約100萬人投了票。她也提醒選民,除了圈選總統以外,不要忘了選票上還有4個全州性的議題,以及第五號的波士頓市社區保存法議題,也待選民圈選。
今日一早七點鐘,查理貝克已在住家旁的Swampscott選票站投出神聖一票。隨後他很感慨的告訴記者們,今年是他第一次沒有圈選總統,他是顯然的對此很感失望。
查理貝克說,很多個月前他就說過,因為好幾個理由,他不能夠支持川普,而他也認為希拉蕊有是否值得信任的問題。九過月過去了,他沒看到足以讓他改變心意的情況。他說他有朋友分別投票支持川普,希拉蕊,他尊重朋友們的決定。更重要的是人們能夠出來行使投票權,並且不要忘了從頭到尾的做圈選,因為參議員或是眾議員的圈選,對麻州本身來說,可是非常重要。
查理貝克還透漏了在選票問題上,他都怎麼投的,包括第一號問題,反對批准許州政府發第二張吃角子老虎執照,第二號問題,支持取消特許學校數目上限,第三號問題,支持限制以關在窄小範圍內的動物所生產,銷售的食品,第四號問題,反對大麻娛樂用合法化。
馬丁華殊早在波士頓市剛開始辦理提早投票的第一天,就已經投了票。拿著有兩張紙的選票,著實填了一陣子。今日,他的競選陣營公佈了他的行程,一整天都會在新罕布夏州位民主黨總統候選人拜票,拉票。

Vote today to advance our shared vision

Friend --

In 2014, we worked together to deliver victory for our shared vision for Massachusetts: a growing economy with more jobs; strong schools regardless of zip code; and safe, healthy communities.
I'm not on the ballot this Election Day, but we do have an opportunity to advance our priorities in a meaningful way. While the presidential election is going to get a lot of buzz, there are some critically important reasons to vote that are much closer to home.
I hope you'll vote today - you can find your polling place here. And when you do, I hope you'll support these causes and candidates:
Commonsense Candidates Across MA
Electing strong, commonsense Republican candidates up and down the ballot will help us advance our shared priorities in the Legislature and communities across the Commonwealth. Find your local candidates here.
YES on Question 2 - More Educational Opportunity
Lifting the arbitrary cap on public charter schools will expand access to some of the best public schools in Massachusetts - while resulting in no change for communities who like their public schools. As a parent, there's nothing I value more than a great education for my children, and Question 2 would give more families access to better choices for their kids. Learn more here. 
NO on Question 4 - Stopping The Commercial Marijuana Industry
The dangerous proposal to legalize marijuana in Massachusetts is wrong for our communities. Question 4 would bring the billion-dollar marijuana industry to Massachusetts, leading to dangerous edible marijuana products with no regulations on THC content. It would deny control to local communities, and it would open the door to increased fatalities from drugged driving, as seen in places like Washington State. Question 4 is the wrong proposal at the wrong time. Learn more here.
Don't forget to get your friends and family to the polls too - every vote will be crucial in these important races.

Thank you,
Governor Charlie Baker

Dear Friend,
Today is Election Day.
Today, is a day when we can show the world that our democracy is as strong as ever. We owe it to those who came before us to do our civic duty and vote.

Today, we have the opportunity to vote for an inclusive, hopeful and united America. Today, we have the opportunity to vote for someone that believes that we are stronger together and there is more that unites us than divides. We have the opportunity to vote for someone that believes in the same vision of America that my parents believed in when they immigrated here 60 years ago. And today, we have the opportunity to make history by electing our first woman president.

A woman who represents the American values we share. A woman who will fight for working families. A woman who has been fighting her whole life for equal opportunities for all.

So today, I ask you to be part of history by doing three things:
Vote, if you haven’t voted already. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m in Massachusetts. Find your polling location here: www.wheredoivotema.com
Remind your friends, family, neighbors, everyone you know that today is Election Day and you need them to vote.
Volunteer. There are numerous volunteer opportunities and events happening throughout Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Sign up here: www.hillaryclinton.com/events

I encourage you to do your civic duty and vote on this important and historic day.

Thank you,

Marty
