How to Vote: Election 2020

While Election 2020 promises to be unlike any other due to the COVID-19 pandemic, there are three essential ways to make your voice heard in the General Election (November 3) this year.


Due to the coronavirus, no excuse is necessary to vote absentee in Massachusetts this year. You can submit a MAIL-IN BALLOT APPLICATION online, through the Secretary of State's website.

Vote Early

If you prefer to vote in person, EARLY VOTING will be held October 17-30 in Massachusetts. Exact times and polling locations for early voting in our district are listed below by town!

Vote in Person

Of course, you may also cast your ballot on Election Day itself. The General Election will be held on Tuesday, November 3. Please confirm the status of your VOTER REGISTRATION and locate your polling station in advance. The deadline to register this year is October 23!
