Sutton, Massachusetts is plunk in the middle of a mostly Democratic state. As of October 2010, Massachusetts had about 1.5 million Democrats vs about 500,000 Republicans. Fascinatingly, this is pretty much EXACTLY the number of enrolled party members back in 2002! Since Massachusetts has grown in population in the middle, more people must be choosing to be unenrolled. There are also handfuls of Libertarians and Greens here.
Whatever your affiliation, be sure to check on how your senators and reps are voting! Many of them cross party lines on key votes, which may or may not please you. The only way the reps know know how their constituents feel is if we contact them and speak out!
