Regional Representation

As we approach November, the state usually provides a ballot view for each voter.  We will provide links when these views are avaiable.

  • State Senators – 40 Senators are elected every 2 years.   Visit malegislature.gov for more information.
  • State Representatives – 160 Representatives are elected every 2 years.  Visit malegislature.gov for more information.
  • County Sheriffs  are elected every 6 years (this year). Boston Magazine published an informational article on MA Sheriffs, with links to additional information.
  • Governor’s Council  – 8 Governor’s Council members are elected every 2 years.  Visit  ma.gov for more information.  Arguably, the Governor’s Council’s most important role is in approving the governor’s MA Supreme Court nominations.  REV Up MA does NOT take a partisan position, but we are providing a link to a recent article in the Milford Daily News which illustrates the considerations of the Governor’s Council.
