There will also be three questions on the statewide ballot, including two that have become highly controversial.

Question 1 concerns the Right to Repair provision, and a yes vote would allow vehicle owners and independent repair facilities in Massachusetts to have access to the same vehicle diagnostic and repair information made available to the manufacturers’ Massachusetts dealers and authorized repair facilities.

Question 2 concerns assisted suicide, and a yes vote would allow a doctor licensed in Massachusetts to prescribe medication, at the request of a terminally ill patient meeting certain conditions, to end that person’s life.

Question 3 concerns medical marijuana, and a yes vote would legalize medical marijuana in the state and allow it to be regulated, prescribed and distributed to qualified patients.
