     Massachusetts voters who have not already requested to vote-by-mail for the November election should keep an eye on their mailbox.

    Vote-by-mail applications are being sent to all registered voters who had not previously asked for a general election ballot.

      A record number of Massachusetts voters cast ballots for the September 1st primary –a turnout election officials said was fueled at least in part by the new vote-by-mail law.

     WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Gladys Oyola-Lopez, the city of Springfield’s Election Commissioner.
