Two Days Left To Register To Vote In Cambridge!

Are you registered to vote? The last day for Cambridge municipal election registration is this Wednesday, October 18 at 8pm.

Hi all,

All seats on Cambridge City Council are up for election this November 7, and the make-up of the Council is critical to making rapid progress toward safe biking infrastructure for all ages and abilities. The last day to register to vote in Cambridge municipal elections is this Wednesday, October 18 at 8pm. Spend two minutes to make sure you’re registered and send to five friends.

We know that our streets are still not safe for bikers and pedestrians, which is why CBS has laid out a bold Cambridge Bicycle Safety Platform requiring a clear timeline for fast-tracked implementation of the 20 miles of protected lanes called for in the city’s Bike Plan.To get the platform implemented and not take out the lanes we already have, we need councillors good on bikes, and that means we all need to vote!

Here are some of the Council policy orders that kick-started the last year’s pop-up protected lanes. We need many more.

Here is what we need to do before Wednesday:

1.  Check if you are registered to vote, and if not: Register yourself (unless you have a Mass drivers license, you have to print and mail or deliver in person)Send or deliver the signed form to: Cambridge Election Commission, 51 Inman St., Cambridge, MA 02139.

2.  Sign up to be reminded on election day to get out and vote. You can also join our facebook registration event to be reminded and share with your friends. If you know you will be out of town, you have to register in advance for an absentee ballot.

3. Forward this to 5 Cambridge friends.

(If you are a student, first-time voter, or registered in another state for national elections, this FAQ by MIT is super helpful.)

CBS has published statements of candidate signers to our platform, and will be publishing good actions and statements by candidates on our website and facebook page.
