      Voting rights advocates hope to establish automatic voter registration in Massachusetts.

      A bill has been filed that would automatically register people to vote when they renew their driver’s license, register a vehicle, or apply for MassHealth.  

         WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Janet Domenitz, executive director of MassPirg, and a member of the Election Modernization Coalition.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
