Mass Nonbinding Custody Question Results in a Resounding YES!!

A nonbinding question "which asked if citizens want their state representative to vote in favor of legislation that would create a presumption in favor of shared legal and physical custody of children in divorce cases" was included on Massachusetts ballots (Nov 2, 2004). The results came back significantly in favor of shared custody.

The question appeared in approx 30 of Mass 159 districts. "The statewide totals were 557,615 "yes" votes and 90,708 "no" votes."
