State's Highest Court Denies Effort to Block VOTES Act

The state’s highest court has denied an effort by the state Republican party to block election officials from putting into effect the state’s new mail-in and early voting law.


"The decision ensures Massachusetts residents will be able to take advantage of the expanded voter options this year. Opponents had argued the new law, dubbed the Votes Act, violates the state constitution. Many of the voting options were implemented during the height of the coronavirus pandemic and proved popular."
