Massachusetts Rejected More Than 11,000 Mail In Ballots In September 2022 Primary

September 27, 2022

Not everyone who wanted to vote by mail in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in the September 2022 primary had his vote counted.

There were 480,255 ballots cast by mail, but 11,412 of those were received and rejected. The most common reason for rejected ballots was that they showed up late; 8,070 ballots were discarded because they didn’t arrive before 8 p.m. on primary day, according to Politico.

The other two more common reasons for rejection were that the voter didn’t sign the envelope containing the ballot (1,088 ballots) and some ballots (751) were missing envelopes.

In total, that means there was a mail-in ballot rejection rate of about 2.3 percent. 

 

New to NewBostonPost?  Conservative media is hard to find in Massachusetts.  But you’ve found it.  Now dip your toe in the water for two bucks — $2 for two months.  And join the real revolution.
