New Mass. law sets in motion mail-in, early voting options

A dramatic expansion of mail-in and early voting in Massachusetts is now law, and Secretary of State William Galvin is now preparing to quickly mail applications to all 4.5 million of the state’s registered voters by a deadline next week.

Galvin announced late Monday afternoon that Gov. Charlie Baker signed into law the reforms drafted during the pandemic and aimed at ensuring maximum participation while allowing people to choose voting options and minimize their COVID-19 risks.

This election season, for the first time in the state’s history, all voters who wish to do so will be able to cast a ballot via mail without needing to qualify for an absentee ballot.


By July 15, Galvin’s office must send applications for mail-in primary election ballots to all voters. His staff will then need to send another round of applications in September for the general election.

The new law also creates the state’s first-ever early voting period before a primary election, from Aug. 22 to Aug. 28, and expands general election early voting to run from Oct. 17 to Oct. 30.

A six-member legislative conference committee reached a deal last week after both branches passed their own reform bills. The House passed the compromise legislation 157-1, with only Dracut Democratic Rep. Colleen Garry voting against it, while the Senate approved the measure unanimously.

Baker had until Sunday to decide whether to sign, veto or return the bill with an amendment. By signing it Monday, he gave Galvin more than a week to meet the July 15 application-mailing deadline rather than only a few days.

Baker had offered few hints about his thinking on the topic. In late May, he questioned the urgency of the issue, arguing that “the elections are a long way away.”

Bull biscuits. You and EVERYONE ELSE knows it has nothing to do with keeping people safe. It's solely about removing Trump by any means necessary.....including falsifying votes. It will be hilarious to see how many Democratic votes come from the cemetery. 

Oh boy!!! Even great great uncle Festor voted for Creepy Joe!!!:rolleyes:

If you see the Democrats on TV all explaining how important this is.... you know right there they have a plan. Anything that reduces the opportunity for cheating is met with fierce opposition, but this plan is a good plan and completely acceptable.

 

The plan is to get as many Democrat governors as possible to initiate mail in vote\ing, cheat like hell in the election, and hope it is enough to win. The Democrats think it is completely acceptable that if their ideas lack a majority, a majority should be created through fraud. They would have loved living in Stalin’s Russia.

Look at the other plan they have. Regardless of how a state votes, the national vote leader gets their delegates. So as a citizen of a state, your vote is subservient to one from another state. Their vote cancels yours.

 

Colorado is won by Trump, but the electors go to Joe because folks in New York and LA said so. Crazy stuff but they already have a bunch of states signed up for this.

I will tell you this.  We see snowflakes losing their **** and even burning and looting.  Conservatives have always said 'look how we handle decisions that dont go our way'.  

 

If they actually steal this election, I have a feeling it could be the beginning of the end.  Some guys are going to start fires.

Yesterday's SCOTUS ruling would prevent that.
