Permanent Resident eCard Eligibility
A permanent resident is an individual whose true home or permanent residence is located in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. One's legal residence is usually the place where an individual maintains the most important family, social, economic, political and religious ties.
The easiest test is to ask yourself, "Where do I sleep most nights? Where do I keep most of my posessions? Where do I receive the bulk of my mail?"
If your primary residence is in another state, but you have a secondary residence in Massachusetts such as a summer home, you may be eligible to register if you own that second residence.
