The 2020 United States presidential election in Massachusetts is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, November 3, 2020, as part of the 2020 United States elections in which all 50 states plus the District of Columbia will participate.[1] Massachusetts voters will choose electors to represent them in the Electoral College via a popular vote. The state of Massachusetts has 11 electoral votes in the Electoral College.[2]

As of May 2019, Donald Trump and former Governor of Massachusetts Bill Weld are the declared Republican candidates. Current Massachusetts governor Charlie Baker declined to run against Trump, as did former Massachusetts governor and current Utah senator Mitt Romney.[3][4][5][6]

Bernie Sanders, Tulsi Gabbard, Kamala Harris, Beto O’Rourke, and former Vice President Joe Biden are among the declared major Democratic candidates. Elizabeth Warren, one of the two current senators from Massachusetts, formed an exploratory committee in December 2018 and declared her intention to run in February 2019.[7][8] Deval Patrick, former Governor of Massachusetts, declined to run, as did former Massachusetts senator John Kerry.[9][10]
