            There are three questions on the election ballot statewide in Massachusetts this year.

In some parts of western Massachusetts voters will see a fourth question on their ballot. 

It seeks to record public support for a single-payer health care system in Massachusetts.

WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Deborah Levenson of Western Massachusetts Medicare for All, the organization sponsoring the ballot question.
