Massachusetts voters now have the option to vote early by mail in ALL elections, with no excuse required. To request your Vote by Mail ballot, submit a signed application to the Town Clerk’s office.
In addition to no-excuse early voting by mail, Massachusetts has absentee voting for those who qualify. While early Vote by Mail ballots are more common, there are special circumstances where you need to apply for an absentee ballot instead.
