Vote-By-Mail Legislation Passed By Massachusetts Senate

The Massachusetts Senate has passed legislation that seeks to expand vote-by-mail provisions as a result of the ongoing pandemic, according to State House News Services. 

 

The senate approved its own version of legislation that would give registered Commonwealth voters three options to cast a ballot. 

 

The three options include voting during extended early voting periods, voting in person on election day and voting by mail. 

 

There is a provision in the Senate version of the bill that has Secretary of State William Galvin mail every voter an application for a ballot by July 15. 

 

The legislation will now make its way to the house. It’s possible that a conference committee could be reconciled to produce a final piece of legislation by the end of the Summer season.

 

If this legislation is signed into law, it would be on the books through the final day in 2020.
