Hi Massachusetts, if you want to vote in  the 2022 midterm elections there are three   steps you need to take.

Register, make  your plan, and of course, vote.   Lets start with getting registered. If you  have a Massachusetts drivers license, you can   register online.

If not, you’ll need to print out  an application form and mail it in. Links to both   are at  But either way you register,   you need to do it by October 19th. Then it’s time to make your plan for   how you’re going to vote.

If you’re going to be out of town,   can’t get to the polls because you’re ill  or disabled, or maybe you want to vote in   Massachusetts but you go to college somewhere  else, then you can vote absentee.   To do that, you need to fill out a form to request  your ballot by October 25th. But the sooner you   do it the better, so you have time for your Town  Clerk to get your application, mail you a ballot,   and for you to mail it back so that it gets  to them no later than November 8th.   Any Massachusetts voter can vote early in person  though, from October 28th through November 4th at   your Town Clerk’s office. You can find all those  locations and their hours at this link.   Or you can vote on election day on November 8th.  You can look up where you’ll vote at that same   link, and polls are open from 7am to 8pm.

If this is your first time voting in   Massachusetts, you’ll need to bring a proof  of address with you. A Massachusetts driver's   license, state ID, utility bill, bank  statement, lease, or any ID with your   name and current address on it will work. Once you have your plan for how you’re going to   vote, where you need to go, what time you’re going  to vote, and what proof of address you’re going   to bring, you just need to follow the plan,  and go vote on or before November 8th.   If you want to know ahead of time everything  that’s on your ballot, you can find a sample   ballot at so you  have time to research candidates and make your   decisions.

You don’t have to vote for everything  for your ballot to count, but this is your best   chance to choose who gets to make decisions  about your life: all the way from congress   to your city council or school board. There are links for everything you need to   register, vote early, find your polling  place, and locate your sample ballot at Thank you for voting!
