ABSENTEE BALLOT INFORMATION
Massachusetts ONLY allows voters to vote by absentee ballot if they:
- will be absent from your city or town on election day, and/or
- have a physical disability that prevents your voting at the polling place, and/or
- cannot vote at the polls due to religious beliefs.
You may have an absentee ballot mailed to you or you may vote at your city or town hall by making arrangements with your local election official.
To be counted, a completed ballot must be received by the time the polls close on Election Day to be counted.
If you are voting from outside the United States, your completed absentee ballot for a final state or city election can be received up until 10 days after the election, but must be postmarked on or before Election Day.
