Voter Registration Information

Attention Voters:

Your enrollment as a voter will affect the party primary in which you can vote at the March 1, 2016 Presidential Primary.
There are four political parties in Massachusetts. If you are enrolled in one of these political parties, you will find the following letter codes next to your name in the column marked “PARTY”:

D - Democratic Party      R - Republican Party
J - Green-Rainbow          CC - United Independent Party

When voting on March 1, 2016, voters who are enrolled in one of the above parties can only vote on the ballot for that party.
Voters who are unenrolled in a party (commonly known as “Independent”) will be listed with the party code “U” in the PARTY column. Unenrolled voters and voters who are members of Political Designations (indicated by other letter codes) can choose which party’s ballot they would like to receive.
If you wish to change your party enrollment for the Presidential Primary, you must do so on or before February 10, 2016. You may change your party enrollment by completing a new voter registration form in person, by mail, or online at
