Participation expectations

Massachusetts officials do not believe there is “tremendous enthusiasm” for this year’s general election in the Bay State.

Secretary of State William Galvin said the state has mailed more than 1.1 million mail-in ballots in response to requests, and the state has received 776,000 so far. Elections officials expect some of the pending mail-in ballots to arrive yet, but not all.

About 187,000 people in Massachusetts voted early in person, according to Galvin, who said his best estimate of total voter turnout in this election is 2.2 million. That’s down from the 2.7 million votes that were cast in 2018.

How do I report a concern?

The state says voters with concerns about how their ballot was counted or other issues in the voting process can contact the Secretary of State’s Division of Elections at 1-800-462-VOTE (8683).
