Hundreds of thousands of new voters could be added in Massachusetts as a result of Gov. Charlie Baker recently signing into law an automatic voter registration bill.

Massachusetts becomes the 14th state to adopt automatic voter registration. 

The bill was pushed by the Election Modernization Coalition, an alliance of seven organizations including Common Cause-Massachusetts, The League of Women Voters, and the Massachusetts Public Interest Research Group.

WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with MassPIRG Executive Director Janet Domenitz.

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.
