Am I eligible to vote?
Check your voter status here.
If you haven’t registered, you’re out of luck for the general election. In Massachusetts, the registration deadline is 20 days before an election (though a judge recently ruled that requirement to be unconstitutional; the secretary of state plans to appeal).
