Vote By Mail
In July, a new law was passed to allow all registered voters in Massachusetts to vote by mail in any 2020 election, with no excuse needed.
As required by the new law, a Vote by Mail application has been mailed to every person who was registered to vote by July 1 and who has not already requested an absentee ballot for the State Primary or for all elections this year. A second mailing will be sent out in September to all voters who have not already applied for a Vote by Mail ballot for the November election. The applications are pre-addressed to your local election official and no postage is necessary.
Vote by Mail applications must be delivered to your local election office no later than 4 business days before the election. For the State Primary ballot, your application must reach your local election office no later than August 26. For the State Election ballot, your application must reach your local election office no later than October 28.
If you wish to vote by mail, you are strongly encouraged to return your application as early as possible, to make sure that you will receive your ballot in time to return it and have it be counted. If you’re applying for a State Primary ballot, this application must arrive at your local election office by August 26. For November 3 State Election ballots, the application must arrive by October 28.
