Constitutional change would allow early voting in Mass.

The state Legislature advanced a constitutional amendment Wednesday aimed at facilitating early voting and more widespread use of absentee voting, but Senate President Therese Murray said the lengthy process is just one option available to supporters.

“ I would like to see it come through as legislation so it could be done sooner. A lot of people are disenfranchised, particularly people who live in my communities who travel to work sometimes north of Boston, leave before the polls open, and get home when the polls are closed,” said Murray, whose district includes Plymouth, Falmouth, and Sandwich.
