ezs note:  Massachusetts voters:  Remember, you don't have to plan something gargantuan to make a real difference. Go to town/city hall meetings.  Go to a pancake breakfast. If you a person of faith, go to meetings at your church, synagogue, or mosque.  You get the picture. And you don't have to wear a badge the size of a paper plate.  Just strike up a casual conversation.

Oh, by the way, register and VOTE.  This makes a REAL difference.
