The A.R.T. Ticket Services Office and reception desk at the Loeb Drama Center and OBERON will carry voter registration forms through the October 17 registration deadline. Drop by our building and speak with a representative to obtain registration forms for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. We’ll even provide a pre-stamped envelope for you to mail it in!
During performances of The Black Clown, A.R.T. representatives will be in the lobby one hour prior to curtain to assist patrons registering to vote. Whether you are attending a performance or not, drop-in to obtain information and find out how you can run your own voter registration drive!
Further information about elections in Massachusetts, including a direct link to register to vote online, can be found on the Secretary of the Commonwealth’s website.
