Governor Charlie Baker signed the VOTES Act on Wednesday, June 22, greatly enabling more citizens flexibility in voting, including no-excuse mail-in ballots, expanding early voting times, shortening the deadline for registering before elections, and more. Thank you to all of our state legislators for being behind this momentous legislation.
