We're heading into a very important election on November 6th, when Massachusetts voters will not only choose their state and federal legislators, they'll also determine the future of nondiscrimination protections for our transgender friends and neighbors.

The law that protects transgender people in Massachusetts from discrimination in public spaces such as restaurants, medical and dental offices, shops, public transportation, etc. is facing a repeal vote as Question 3 on the November ballot.

Please make sure you're registered so you can vote YES on 3 and support pro-LGBTQ candidates in the November 6th election. The deadline to register for this election is October 17th—less than a month from now. It takes less than a minute to check your voter registration status online, so why wait?

Check your voter registration status now!

There are many LGBTQ champions on the ballot this year, both challengers and incumbents. Some of them are facing strong, anti-LGBTQ opponents, and they need your vote in order to win. And we need everyone to vote YES on 3 on November 6th, so don't miss this historic election—make sure you're registered to vote!
