June 12, 2018/Boston, MA — The Massachusetts Senate today unanimously passed the Automatic Voter Registration bill! The Senate and House will now reconcile the minor differences in the two versions of the bill, and it is expected to be sent to Governor Baker for his signature soon.
Automatic Voter Registration is the next major reform in the voting process, and Massachusetts will become the 14th state to adopt this measure. At a time when there are efforts across the country to make it more difficult for citizens to register and to vote, Massachusetts can be proud of taking this very positive step toward helping our citizens register.
The League of Women Voters and its partners in the Election Modernization Coalition issued a press release following the vote.
