Question 3 safeguards animals and humans

The 2016 election is one of the most polarizing in history, with many relatives and neighbors sharply divided. Some of these rifts involve deeply held but conflicting beliefs. Thankfully, there's a measure on this year's ballot that's bringing together people of all political persuasions.

Charlie Baker plans to vote yes on Question 3, Massachusetts’s farm animal protection ballot measure

When Gov. Charlie Baker fills out his ballot Tuesday, he will vote to make cage-free eggs the law of the land in Massachusetts.

According to spokesman Billy Pitman, the Massachusetts governor plans to vote yes on Question 3, a ballot initiative that would ban certain restrictive means of confining farm animals in the state.

About the Issue

Citizens for Farm Animal Protection is a grassroots coalition working to prevent cruelty to veal calves, egg-laying hens, and pigs by campaigning for a YES! vote on Question 3 of this November's ballot. These animals are crammed into cages so small they can't turn around or extend their limbs. This practice is abusive and increases the risk of food safety problems, like Salmonella. We're a broad coalition of non-profit organizations, farmers and businesses, community leaders, and grassroots activists dedicated to enacting Question 3 to ban the cruel confinement of farm animals. Thanks to the help of more than a thousand volunteers, we gathered more than 170,000 signatures from registered Massachusetts voters to qualify for the ballot. By voting YES! on Question 3, we will help protect animals from abuse.
