Shape Tomorrow, Vote Today!

Did you know there are approximately 59,000 registered voters in Lowell?  In the 2016 presidential election, approximately 35,000 of them voted.  In the past two city elections, far fewer participated – 10,714 in 2015 and just 11,581 in 2013.

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, grassroots 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.
