About the Massachusetts Ballot Question Process
Twenty-four states allow citizens to add proposed laws on the statewide ballot, meaning that voters can enact them directly. Massachusetts is one of these states, and we simply need to collect signatures on a petition to the legislature from registered Massachusetts voters.
A petition in Massachusetts cannot be signed electronically. Wet ink on an official petition form provided by the Secretary of State - "live signatures". Amendment Article 48 of the Massachusetts Constitution details the steps required to gain ballot access.
