- you will be absent from your city or town on Election Day.
- you have a physical disability that prevents your voting at the polling place.
- you cannot vote at the polls due to religious beliefs
- you are confined in a correctional facility or jail (but NOT on a felony charge) Generally, a voter must be registered in order to vote absentee, though several exceptions exist: Those outside of Massachusetts, prisoners, and members of the armed forces or merchant marine, or their spouses or dependents, do not need to be registered in order to vote absentee.
