VIRTUAL: Know Your Sheriff

VIRTUAL: Know Your Sheriff

Sheriffs have the power to make our communities safer and more just for all—but most Massachusetts voters don’t even know who their sheriff is. It’s time to change that. It’s time to Know Your Sheriff.

Know Your Sheriff is a public education campaign by the ACLU of Massachusetts to build voter awareness about the life-changing decisions that sheriffs make.

Polling shows that many voters are not familiar with sheriffs—but when they learn more, they are more likely cast a ballot for sheriff in the next election.

Polling also shows that voters favor treatment and education over punishment.

Knowing your sheriff means knowing that YOU have the power to demand safer communities and a more just criminal legal system.

In Hampshire County, three candidates are running in the Democrat primary on September 6:

Patrick J. Cahillane (incumbent)
Yvonne C. Gittelson 
Caitlin Sara Sepeda
