Students in Massachusetts can choose whether to register at their campus address or at home. However, they can only be registered and vote in one location. If a student is currently registered to vote on campus but is now living off campus for the fall 2020 semester, they must re-register to vote at their current residential address.
The deadline to register to vote in the November 3, 2020 election in Massachusetts is Saturday, October 24, 2020. However, it is recommended to register as soon as you can, especially if you plan to vote by mail.
