Today's a deadline

Our get-out-the-vote efforts are in full swing. But things look a little different this year, and we want to make sure you have the latest information!

A law was passed to allow all registered voters in Massachusetts to vote by mail in any 2020 election, with no explanation required.

  • A Vote by Mail application was mailed to every person who was registered to vote by July 1 and who had not yet 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 a State Primary ballot, your application must reach your local election office no later than today, August 26.
  • For a 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'd like to support our efforts, consider chipping in today – these grassroots donations may not seem significant, but they are what powers this campaign.
