LWVMA has developed an Online Voters' Guide for the November 6th state and national election, with information about the background, stances, and endorsements of all candidates on the ballot in Massachusetts, as well as candidate responses to questions posed by LWVMA. The online guide asks for a voter's address, so it can present the candidates that will be on that voter's ballot.
