campaign 2012In honor of Election Day, we caught up with BU Law students for their perspective on a few of the issues facing MA residents this election year.


Fighting Voter Fraud or Imposing Unnecessary Roadblocks:
What's your take on Voter ID Laws?

Over the past few years, many of the nation's states have enacted stricter voter ID laws, some requiring people to show a government-issued photo ID in order to vote. During the run up to the 2012 presidential election we asked BU Law students whether they're in favor of or against these regulations.

Prescribing Medication to End Life-- How will you answer Question #2?

This year, Massachusetts voters have a chance to weigh in through a question on the ballot as to whether assisted suicide will be legalized in the state. The so called "Death With Dignity" initiative would give terminally ill patients, with a life expectancy of six months or less, the opportunity to request assisted suicide from their doctor. We asked BU Law students what their opinion is on the matter and how they will be voting on election day.
