MEDFORD, MA (WBZ-AM) — The 2018 midterm elections are just around the corner and Massachusetts voters are giving their ballots a lot of thought.

WBZ NewsRadio1030’s Bill Marcus spoke to a cross-section of the electorate Sunday morning at a Starbucks in Medford about why these voters are casting their ballots Tuesday.

One voter was Danny, an electrician from Malden. He has moved back from the area after living in Rockport.

 “Before wasn’t that much work. But, there’s plenty of work. And that’s motivated me to keep voting,” Danny said.

Danny said he likes Republican Senate candidate Geoff Diehl. He has also expressed a dislike for incumbent Gov. Charlie Baker. Rich, a bricklayer, shares this dislike.  

“The workers — especially organized labor — hasn’t been represented at that level,” Rich said.

For voter Eliza, the focus is national.

“If we do vote, we’re making a change. And that does have an impact on the election and the [House of Representatives],” Eliza said.
