Hundreds of thousands of new voters could be added in Massachusetts as a result of Gov. Charlie Baker recently signing into law an automatic voter registration bill.

Massachusetts becomes the 14th state to adopt automatic voter registration. 

The bill was pushed by the Election Modernization Coalition, an alliance of seven organizations including Common Cause-Massachusetts, The League of Women Voters, and the Massachusetts Public Interest Research Group.
