Impact of the VOTES Act
Learn exactly how the new VOTES Act reforms will impact the fall elections—directly from the person who runs elections in Massachusetts! Michelle Tassinari, director of the elections division in the Secretary of State’s office, spoke to League members in a webinar Tuesday, August 2nd. Tassinari discussed how the new law will affect the Secretary’s office and local elections officials—town clerks and city election officers, as well as individual voters. And she offered some suggestions on how the League can help with these changes. Watch the recording here.
