Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I applied to vote by mail, but my ballot is taking a long time to arrive, how can I check?
A: Mail times may vary as the dedicated members of the United States Postal Service are working harder than ever to ensure voters have free and fair access to the ballot. If you are interested in checking on the status of your ballot, you can visit trackmyballotma.com.
Q: I applied to vote by mail. Is there a place I can drop off my ballot instead of mailing it back?
A: Yes. If you received a ballot to vote by mail, you can return it to a secure dropbox in your community, any early vote location, or to your local elections department. Find out where to safely drop off your ballot.
Q: When can I vote on Election Day?
A: The last day to vote in the Massachusetts Democratic Primary is Election Day, Tuesday, September 1. Polls will be open from 7:00AM to 8:00PM. If you plan on voting in person, please visit wheredoivotema.com to find out where you can cast your ballot.
Q: TrackMyBallotMA.com says my ballot status is “Pending.” What does that mean?
A: A “Pending” status on www.trackmyballotma.com means that your application to vote by mail has been received by your local elections department and that they are processing your application. You ballot should be mailed to you shortly.
Q: TrackMyBallotMA.com says my ballot status is “Not Returned.” What does that mean?
A: A “Not Returned” status on www.trackmyballotma.com means that your local elections department has received your application to vote by mail and your ballot has been mailed to you. When your local elections department receives your completed ballot, this status will change to “Accepted.”
Q: How can I minimize risk when I vote in-person during this pandemic?
A: To stay safe when voting in-person, we recommend wearing a mask and bringing your own pen to your polling site, and using hand sanitizer, when you vote in-person!
Q: I already applied to vote by mail. Can I vote in-person instead?
A: Yes! As long as your mail-in ballot has not been received by your local elections office, you can vote in-person — even if you already requested your ballot. If you have already completed and returned or mailed your ballot, you cannot vote in person.
Q: I requested a ballot to vote by mail. What is the deadline to send it in?
A: Your ballot must be received by your town’s elections office by 8:00PM EDT on September 1 to be counted for the Democratic primary. It can take up to a week for mail to be delivered, so return your ballot as soon as possible, or vote in-person early (August 22-28) or on Election Day (September 1).
Q: I never received a vote by mail application OR I never sent in my vote by mail ballot. Can I still vote for Ed Markey?
A: If you don’t submit a ballot application in time, you can still vote for Ed Markey in-person during early voting (August 22-28) or on Election Day (September 1). If you receive a ballot but have not yet returned it to your local election department, you still have the option to vote early or on Election Day.
Q: Is it too late to vote early?
A: Early voting in this primary ended on Friday, August 28th. If you have not yet voted for Ed, please make a plan to do so on Election Day, Tuesday September 1st. You can find your polling place here: http://wheredoivotema.com
