Immigrants who are in the country legally could soon be able to vote in Boston’s local elections.
The Boston City Council will hold a hearing on Tuesday on whether to give non-U.S. citizens the ability to vote in city elections if they are in the country legally, WCVB-TV reported.
Those who could become eligible to vote would include: legal permanent residents, DACA recipients, those with Temporary Protected Status and visa holders.
Council President Andrea Campbell requested the hearing in an effort to make voting in Boston elections more inclusive, the Boston Globe reported.
On Monday, Campbell clarified that Tuesday’s meeting “is just a conversation, not a vote on an ordinance.”
“I can no longer only go to rallies or send resolutions to [President] Trump,” she said in a tweet. “What can we DO at the local level to support our immigrants? The discussion will include voting [and] OTHER possibilities.”
