Voting is how we hold our elected representatives accountable to our needs. Many voters don’t realize that in MA that if you haven’t voted in a while or responded to your city census, you can be dropped from the voter rolls. Also, if you move you need to re-register at your new address. Would you like to check your status, update your registration, or simply register to vote?

How to Vote By Mail in the September 1st Primary

All registered MA voters will be allowed to vote by mail in any 2020 elections. Postage free vote-by-mail applications will be mailed to all voters before the primary, and again before the general election. These applications must be received by municipal election offices no later than four days prior to the election. Applications are also available online for download.

  • Complete your application for vote-by-mail, or apply to vote absentee. 
  • Due  to the COVID-19 pandemic, as of July 2020, all registered voters can  participate with no-excuse, mail-in or absentee ballots. 
  • Ballots  must be postmarked by the election date to be counted. In-person voting  will remain an option for voters, with polling places adhering to  social distancing and sanitization standards.
