Election Modernization Bill Passes in Massachusetts

By Janet Domenitz
Executive Director

Today is a good day for democracy in Massachusetts. With the signing of the Election Modernization Bill, Massachusetts enters the 21st century with online voter registration. This bill, promoted by a large coalition including MASSPIRG, Common Cause, League of Women Voters, ACLU, Progressive MA, Mass VOTE, MIRA, and others, will  also allow for ‘no excuse needed’ early voting, registration of 16 and 17 year olds, and other reforms which open up our elections and modernize the mechanics. MASSPIRG applauds all the elected officials who pushed for this bill, the city and town clerks who were allies, and Governor Patrick for his leadership.
