Early Voting Is Here!

Cast your ballot before the November 8th Election

Prior to the enactment of Early Voting, the only way a registered voter was allowed to vote before Election Day was through an absentee ballot. Absentee voting will still be available for registered voters who qualify: those who will be absent from the City of Newton on Election Day; have a disability that prevents them from going to the polls; or have a religious belief preventing the same.

Unlike absentee voting, early voting is for every registered voter. Registered voters do not need an excuse or reason to vote early.

Regardless of whether a voter wants to take advantage of early voting, vote absentee or vote on Election Day, the first step is making sure you are registered. To check to see if you are registered to vote, and to find information on how to register to vote, you may visit the Secretary of the Commonwealth’s website: www.sec.state.ma.us/ele/.

If you need to register to vote, you may do it online by visiting: www.RegisterToVoteMA.com. All you need is a license or an I.D. issued by the Registry of Motor Vehicles to apply online. To be eligible to vote in the November 8th State Election, you must register to vote, or make any necessary changes to your voter registration, by October 19th, 2016.
