State Election: Who, What, When, Where & Why

updated 10/20/22: with local early voting location, dates and times.

In the upcoming State election, candidates on the ballot will be for:

Representative in Congress, Governor, Lieutenant Governor, Attorney General, Secretary of State, State Treasurer, State Auditor, Governor's Council, State Senator, State Representative, District Attorney and Sheriff.

View Sample Ballot.

In addtion, there will be four Ballot Questions:

QUESTION 1: Proposed Amendment to the Constitution, Additional Tax on Income Over One Million Dollars

QUESTION 2: Law Proposed by Initiative Petition, Regulation of Dental Insurance

QUESTION 3: Law Proposed by Initiative Petition, Expanded Availability of Licenses for the Sale of Alcoholic Beverages 

QUESTION 4 -Law Proposed by Initiative Petition,  Eligibility for Driver’s Licenses.

On September 9, 2022, the Elections Division certified that a referendum petition for a ballot question that was submitted on September 7, 2022 had been signed by enough registered voters to qualify for placement on the November 8, 2022 State Election Ballot. 

Because this petition was submitted after the July 2022 deadline for inclusion in the printed Information for Voters booklet that is mailed to each household, this question is not listed in that voter guide. The question will, however, be listed on each November 8 State Election ballot as Question #4.

Last day to register to vote or update your address for the November election is October 29th

The community counts on our elected officials for their support of local issues and initiatives. Elected officials look at voter turnout by neighborhood. Why do State Elections matter? The State (MCCA/BCEC, MBTA and Massport) is a property owner, developer and transit provider in the neighborhood.
