2004 Massachusetts legislative races
and death penalty positions

Last updated: November 3, 2004
Below are all the legislative races with as much detail as I've been able to gather so far. A * indicates an incumbent. The N or Y after a name is how they would vote (or have voted) on death penalty reinstatement, if known. A ? indicates undecided or an incumbent whose position was never clarified. The usual caution should be remembered: no votes are guaranteed. Positions change with circumstances and shifting political winds (especially first-term legislators). Be in touch with your own Senator and Representative each session.
  • Senate: 25 N, 15 Y
  • House: 98 N, 59 Y, 3 ?
winner = winner of general election
