Shape Tomorrow, Vote Today

Lowell Votes is a nonpartisan multilingual grassroots Coalition working to ensure our government is representative, responsive, transparent, and accountable to the people and the community it serves. Through advocacy, education, and engagement, we work to lower barriers to civic participation and voting for all residents in Lowell, particularly those who have been historically underrepresented.

What’s new?

Hear from three past C.E.R.T participants about their experience in the program and why it’s important to get involved in local government!

Lowell Votes recognizes not all residents have equal access to educational opportunities to learn what it takes to run and serve in local government. The Candidate Empowerment and Readiness Training (C.E.R.T) aims to support new candidates, with a special emphasis on candidates from underrepresented populations, through training and resources needed to:

1. Grassroots organize around issues affecting your community and constituents

2. Run for elected office

3. Navigate municipal governing culture, the budget, and govern once elected
