Elections & Voting

Boston prides itself as the cradle of American Democracy and the American Revolution. Home to Paul Revere, John Hancock, and numerous patriots, Boston's protests against King George III of England served as the catalyst that led to independence, democracy, and equal rights for all citizens. Boston's tradition of political activism has always ensured that students have a voice in the political process. By participating in the democratic process, you fullfill your duty as a citizen and shape the future of this City and Government.
