Shape Tomorrow, Vote Today!

Did you know there are approximately 58,000 registered voters in Lowell?  In the 2012 presidential election, approximately 33,000 of them voted.  In the past two city elections, far fewer participated – 11,500 in 2013 and just 10,000 in 2011.

We believe that if more people were to vote in local elections, the city of Lowell and all here would benefit.  To help make that happen, join with other Lowellians in a nonpartisan, grass roots effort to increase participation in the next city election, especially in neighborhoods with historically low turnout and among groups that have faced barriers to voting.

Lowell Votes 2015 Candidate Guide

We’re happy to release our 2015 Candidate Guide. Please note that the most up-to-date guide will be found on this website – if additional candidates respond or if we have corrections or changes, you’ll find it here!

These questions were developed by the Lowell Votes Education Committee after collecting nearly 100 survey responses that asked residents of Lowell to rank their most important issues and suggest questions to ask City Councilors. We asked candidates to limit answers to 300 characters to fit in the guide. Minor edits for spelling and grammar were made, but minor typos may have occurred when typing written responses.

Feel free to print out the guide and bring it into the voting booth on November 3rd! Thanks to all the candidates who sent us thoughtful responses.
