More Than 3.6 Million People May Have Voted In Massachusetts This Year

November 10, 2020

How many people voted in the 2020 general election in Massachusetts?

The exact number is not clear yet. However, it appears as though the total may reach 3.6 million, or even exceed it, the Secretary of the Commonwealth’s office tells MassLive.

It will represent an uptick in the number of ballots cast last year. That number was around 3.3 million. As of Friday morning last week, the state had counted more than 3.25 million ballots. That didn’t include ballots state officials had counted on Monday, provisional ballots, and ones with write-ins or blanks.

Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker says he didn’t vote for a president this year, so his ballot would be considered a blank even if he voted for candidates lower on the ballot.
