Massachusetts Expands Voting Access
This week, the Massachusetts Senate approved a major expansion in voting access, codifying mail-in and early voting. NewDEAL Leader Senator Barry Finegold drafted the legislation and has been a leader in the fight for more access to the ballot. In addition to mail-in and early voting, the bill will allow same-day registration and require state prisons to ensure that eligible inmates can access ballots.
