Today’s Quiz Question: How many Cambridge voters have voted in every city-wide election since 1997 (including municipal elections, primaries, state elections, special (city-wide) elections, and federal elections)?

I just updated my mega-database of Cambridge registered voters (66,327 currently), street listing, and voter history files dating back to 1997. Any other questions you’d like to ask? This post will be expanded accordingly.

Don’t forget to vote on Tuesday, November 4.     Where do I vote?
