Primary Election Day in Massachusetts is Tuesday, September 6th. Clean Water Action is pleased to announce the candidates we have endorsed for the 2022 Primary election! Each of these candidates has values that align strongly with our organization and we hope you check them out! Your vote can make the difference between electing legislators who will fight for clean water, clean air and healthy communities, or those who will simply uphold the status quo.
Remember that legislative districts have changed since the last general election in 2020. Find your polling place here or vote by mail.
