U.S. Rep. Mike Capuano has officially qualified for the 2018 ballot by completing the voter signature requirement. All candidates must submit the signatures of registered voters to the Secretary of State’s office where they are reviewed. Once a candidate reaches 2,000 qualified certified voters, they are approved for the ballot. Capuano submitted well over the required amount.
“I am grateful to everyone who took a few minutes to offer their signature. It’s an important step in the electoral process and gives me a chance to talk with voters about their concerns. It’s more important than ever that we stand up to Trump and his destructive policies and work to create opportunity for everyone. Many voters I talked with shared similar concerns. They worry about protecting the rights of all people and recognize the threat this president represents. They know it’s important to protect Social Security and Medicare, reduce health care and housing costs, stop giving billionaires tax breaks and do more for working families,” stated Rep. Capuano.
“We are in this fight together. The threats to everything we care about are real and we see evidence of that daily. I’m not about to stop now – far too much is at stake – for our neighbors, our families and our country,” Capuano continued.
