We’ve got three exciting things to share this week!
The 2016 Primary Guide, a collaboration between Lowell Votes, Cambodian Mutual Assistance Association, and Coalition for a Better Acre, is here! Check it out if you live in the 18th Middlesex District: In Spanish, Khmer, and English!
Our first public meeting is Monday, August 22, 2016, at 6:30 pm, at the Pollard Memorial Library. Be there for food and workshopping our 2016 program. We can’t do it without you!
The 2016 Rally for Civic Engagement is coming September 2, 2016! We still have tables left for groups or nonprofits that want to collect signatures, share information, get volunteers, and most importantly meet the 2016 candidates for local and state offices!

Save the date! We are kicking off our 2016 season with a Spaghetti’n Out the Vote fundraiser at UnchARTed Gallery, starting 6:00 pm on Tuesday, July 26. We’ll feature speakers, pasta, and some other fun stuff. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in helping us organize.
Know you’re helping! We still need volunteers to remind people to vote and assist them if they need help. You can phone bank from home or join us in the field and be entered to win a $25 gift card. Email email@example.com if interested!
Finally, check out this youtube video from our Rally for Civic Engagement!
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.
