Absentee Voting


In order to be eligible to vote by absentee ballot in Massachusetts, a voter must be prevented from voting at their polling places on Election Day, due to:

  • Absence from the voter's city or town on Election Day; or
  • Physical disability; or
  • Religious belief.

You may have an absentee ballot mailed to you or you may vote at town hall by making arrangements with the Town Clerk.

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.
