Voting Rights for People with Disabilities in Massachusetts
DLC is committed to the voting rights for people with disabilities in Massachusetts. You can vote if you are a citizen of the United States, 18 years old or older, and not currently incarcerated because of a felony.
Voting is a fundamental right. Massachusetts residents who are under guardianship are still eligible to register to vote under most circumstances. Unless a court specifically states that a person under guardianship is restricted from registering or voting, that person remains eligible to vote, as long as they meet all other requirements for voting.
You can register to vote online, in-person, or by mail.
You can vote in person on Election Day or during early voting days. You can also vote by mail. All voters can vote by mail. If eligible, you can vote using Accessible Electronic Vote by Mail.
Below are some voting advocacy videos and resources. Parking, passenger drop-off places, sidewalks, the building, and the voting area must be accessible to people with disabilities.
