Speaking of elections….

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?

  2. In most state elections there are a variety of other ballot questions that only appear on the ballots of some house districts. Many of them are of the “Shall the state representative from this district be instructed to….” variety. None of them are binding. In this case the marijuana legalization question is on the ballot in a number of house districts. I heard it was a “testing the waters” sort of thing.
