States first started enacting laws requiring personal registration of voters in the late nineteenth century. Since 1993, Massachusetts law requires that an individual voting in any election must register to vote twenty days prior to the day of the election. At the same time, Massachusetts courts have long held that the right to vote is a fundamental right protected by the Massachusetts Constitution.
