Every eligible voter deserves a chance to cast their ballot.
Currently, voters across the Commonwealth must register 20 days before all primaries and general elections. This arbitrary voter cutoff disenfranchises thousands of eligible Massachusetts voters every election year – 2/3 of whom simply needed to make an update to their existing registration. Election Day Registration would simplify and modernize the voting process by allowing eligible voters to register or update their registration on the same day that they cast their ballot.
Twenty states have already adopted Election Day Registration. It’s time for Massachusetts to join them so that all qualified Bay State residents can participate in our democracy. Urge your lawmakers to support Election Day Registration today.
