8/13/2014 BOSTON—All 20 candidates for statewide offices on the Democratic and Republican party primary ballots have answered questions posed by the League of Women Voters of Massachusetts.
Their responses are presented in a Primary Election Voters’ Guide to Statewide Offices now available on the League’s website, www.lwvma.org.
The candidates for governor answered questions on economic development, education, transportation, climate change and health care. Candidates for lieutenant governor, attorney general, secretary of state, treasurer and auditor answered questions specific to those offices.
Following the Sept. 9 primary election, the League will update the voters’ guide and add responses from any independent candidates who qualify for the ballot in the general election Nov. 4.
Voters can use the guide to read each candidate’s responses to all the questions or to read all the candidates’ responses to a particular question.
“We hope voters across the Commonwealth will use this voters’ guide to help make informed choices as they go to the polls on Sept. 9,” said Anne Borg, co-president of the League of Women Voters of Massachusetts. “We are pleased to be able to provide this information and thank all the candidates for their willingness to participate in the guide.”
The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan political organization which encourages informed and active participation in government and works to increase understanding of major public policy issues.
