Emergency Preamble

Whereas, The deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to ensure forthwith that the commonwealth’s democratic processes remain fair, honest and orderly while ensuring that candidates show a significant modicum of support in the communities that they seek to represent, therefore it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public convenience.
