From a Boston Globe piece on election reform — to make voting easier, especially if you don’t speak English (or give thought to voting before Election Day):
“There is definite action, and there’s positive energy,” said Giovanna Negretti , a task force member and executive director of the Massachusetts Latino Political Organization, or ¿Oíste?. “All of this is very surprising, truth be told.”
The task force also praised the city for work it did during the 2005 election cycle. Almost 1,500 poll workers were trained, 384 of whom were multilingual; ballots and election materials at all polling locations were translated into Spanish, Chinese, and Vietnamese; and the city established a phone bank so that voters who do not speak English could get help.
