Massachusetts Directory of Political Parties and Designations

When you register to vote, you may choose to enroll in a political party or political designation or may choose to remain “unenrolled,” which is commonly referred to as independent. If you do not enroll in a party, you may still vote in state and presidential primaries by choosing a party ballot and will remain unenrolled.

Once you make an enrollment choice you may change your enrollment status by notifying your election official in writing at least 20 days before an election.

Parties

If you enroll in any of these two parties you may vote only in that party’s primary. Enrollment in a political party does not affect your right to vote in the general election. In the general election, all voters receive the same ballot and vote for the candidate of their choice, regardless of party enrollment.
