Senator Rausch: How to vote by mail!

Dear friends,

Did you know you can vote by mail, vote in person early, *or* head to the polls on Election Day in Massachusetts for both the 2020 primary AND general election? As a registered voter, you have all three options!

If you want to vote by mail, while I fought tooth and nail for universal, automatic vote by mail, unfortunately your mail-in ballot isn't automatically headed to you. There are a few steps you must take to ensure you get your mail-in ballots and your votes get counted in this critically important election year. You may have already received your 2020 vote-by-mail application in the mail.

I made a quick 2-minute explainer on how to successfully cast your ballot by mail for this year's elections. Take a look here:

I fought incredibly hard to bring vote by mail to our Commonwealth, and I'm deeply proud that voters won't have to choose between casting a ballot and staying safe during a global pandemic. In such uncertain times, it is crucial that we protect our democracy by preserving our constitutional right to vote.

You can also visit my new elections guide on my website to learn everything about your voting options for 2020, including mail-in ballots, registering to vote, key deadlines, and frequently asked questions about voting by mail in Massachusetts.

Stay cool and stay safe, everyone!

Yours in service,

Senator Becca Rausch

    1. The updated forms for voting by mail have not yet been issued. I do have time scheduled with our Town Clerk in July where I hope to gather what the latest will be and the overall timelines for the Sept primary and November election.

      In the meantime, the page with 2021 voter info can be found here -> https://www.franklinma.gov/town-clerk/pages/2021-elections-voting

      I'll see that you get the info on the formal application to submit to request a vote by mail ballot. That request needs to be submitted through the proper channels.
