The last day to apply to vote by mail in Massachusetts is Wednesday, September 8 to get a ballot for the September 14 municipal elections. Applications must arrive at the city election office by 5 p.m. on Wednesday in order for a ballot to be mailed.
Any voter who wishes to cast their ballot by mail may apply by submitting a signed request for a ballot by drop box, email, fax, or by mail. Emailed applications must include an image of a hand-written signature.
Since the U.S. Postal Service recommends allowing up to 7 days for mail delivery, Secretary of the Commonwealth William Galvin is urging voters to use drop boxes to submit applications and ballots.
Voters who have not already returned a ballot still have the option of voting in person.
