Breaking down barriers for first-time and first-gen homebuyers and closing the racial wealth gap!

VOTE today

On Tuesday, November 5th voters will go to the polls...or will they? Make sure you are one of those who make a plan and VOTE. Boston voters will select four at-large City Councilors and voters in Districts 4, 5, 7, 8 and 9 will decide on who will represent them. In addition, Boston voters will be asked their opinion in a non-binding referendum that proposes to change the name of Dudley Square to Nubian Square. Polls are open from 7am-8pm.

TODAY is Election Day in Boston for contested City Council races

In some odd-numbered years, our politics can be sleepy. But not this year! Fifteen candidates are running for four at-large City Council seats and there are active races in Districts 5 (Hyde Park-Mattapan), 7 (Roxbury), 8 (Back Bay-Fenway-Mission Hill), and 9 (Allston-Brighton). MAHA is reminding all that it is important to get out and vote on Tuesday, September 24th between 7am-8pm. Check out our questionnaire to the candidates to find out where they stand on issues important to MAHA members.
