Massachusetts State BadgeYesterday, Massachusetts governor Deval Patrick signed a bill that allows for early voting, online voter registration, post-election audits of voting machines, and pre-registration for 16 and 17 year-olds.

With these election updates, Massachusetts joins 23 other states that allow online voter registration, 32 that offer some form of early voting, and 14 that have pre-registration.

“These modernizations are a big step forward for Massachusetts and we hope they will go a long way in increasing participation for all citizens in the Commonwealth especially our youngest citizens, lower-income communities, and communities of color,” said Cheryl Clyburn Crawford, Executive Director, MassVOTE.
