Turning 18 Years Old By November 3, 2020? Register to vote.

Remember to register to vote.

You’ve taken U.S. History so you know the importance of voting in a democracy. However, few U.S. citizens participate in elections and young people have lower turnout than middle-aged and older adults. It’s time to change that.

With the onset of the pandemic, doing your civic duty by voting has become a bit more complicated, particularly for first-time voters. The links below will answer questions about how and where to register, securing a mail-in ballot, or how to vote in your local town hall.

The government’s main site:

Each state has their own Board of Elections website with specific voting regulations and information. Here is the link to the Massachusetts site.

The Massachusetts primary is Tuesday, September 1, 2020 and the State election (the big one) is November 3, 2020.

If you live outside of MA or want to vote in the town where you will be attending college, you can find your state here.

Some college towns are actively discouraging out-of-state students from voting in the community, so be sure to check local regulations in advance so you don’t lose your chance to vote.

Register to vote if you’re eligible. You will be glad you did.
