About Us

Mission

We are a nonpartisan effort to encourage and support all citizens of the City of Lowell to shape their community through voting with a special emphasis on those who face barriers to voting or have historically low turnout rates.

We will do this through facilitating strategic and tactical coordination and cooperation between existing organizations, groups, and concerned citizens and by providing tools to assist in voter education and encouragement.

Goals

We will know we’re successful when there is:

Greater turnout: We want Lowell to have the highest voting turnout n the Commonwealth both as a proportion of registered voters and a proportion of voting-eligible residents.

More equal turnout: We want voting-eligible members of every neighborhood and every demographic group to understand the importance of voting and have equal access to voting.

Deeper understanding: We want all citizens to be able to articulate the issues critical to them that they can influence through voting.

How

Create and provide tools to a team of volunteers and partner organizations. The team will make personal contact with voters and potential voters to encourage, educate, and support them by meeting them where they are: in churches, stores, parks, community events, and most especially, at their front doors.
