Voter Information & Links

Early Vote by Mail

Massachusetts voters now have the option to vote early by mail in all elections, with no excuse required. To request your vote by mail ballot, submit a signed application to the Town Clerk's Office.

Application to Request a Ballot by Mail - Individual Voter

Application to Request a Ballot by Mail - Family

To request an early voting by mail ballot:

  • Fill out the application, print it, sign it, and return by Monday, February 27, 2023 at 5:00 PM to:
    Town Clerk
    1625 Massachusetts Ave.
    Lexington, MA 02420
  • Your ballot request must be received in writing, signed by the applicant in order to process your request.
  • Your ballot will be mailed to the address you put on the application.  Please note: if you have a forwarding request filed with the post office, then election materials (ballots) cannot/will not be forwarded.

All ballots must be returned by 8 PM on Monday, March 6, 2023 by the Town Clerk's Office. 

It is highly recommended that ballots be sent back as soon as possible after voting to ensure timely receipt and processing of ballots by the deadline.

Absentee Ballots

In addition to no-excuse early voting by mail, Massachusetts has absentee voting for those who qualify. While early vote by mail ballots are more common, there are special circumstances where you need to apply for an absentee ballot instead. 

To qualify for an absentee ballot, you must:

  1. Be away from your city/town on Election Day; or
  2. Have a disability that keeps you from voting at your polling place; or
  3. Have a religious belief that prevents you from voting at your polling place on Election Day

Absentee voters use the same ballots as early voters and have the same deadlines for returning their ballots. Most voters who qualify for an absentee ballot can choose instead to apply for an early Vote by Mail ballot. There are some times that an absentee ballot application is needed. You should fill out an absentee ballot application if:

  • You are a U.S. citizen residing overseas; or
  • You are on active military duty; or
  • You are currently incarcerated for a reason other than a felony conviction; or
  • You are requesting an emergency absentee ballot due to hospitalization.
