The VOTE411.org online guide will allow voters to access personalized ballot information
simply by entering a street address. Voters will also be able to find in-depth information about
candidates, voter registration, voting requirements and rules, and poll locations. LWVMA is
bringing this digital platform to Massachusetts voters across the state for the first time for the
September 8 primary; only those candidates who face a challenger in the primary election on
September 8 have been asked to respond to this primary guide.

Absentee ballot informationAn important component of VOTE411.org is the polling place locator, which enables users to type in their address and retrieve the poll location for the voting precinct in which that address is located.
