    Via Mass SoS:

    A candidate’s nomination may be challenged by a registered voter of the district within three days following the date for filing nomination papers with the Secretary of the Commonwealth. Written objections to nominations are filed with the State Ballot Law Commission at the Secretary of the Commonwealth’s Elections Division. For details see “Objections Before the State Ballot Law Commission,” a publication available from the Elections Division or The State Bookstore.
    Which in turn notes:
    An objection is a legal document that establishes the issues that will be decided by the Commission. It must include in detail each ground for protest as to why the candidate should not be considered nominated or why the question should not appear on the ballot. G. L. c. 55B, § 5 (2000 ed.); 801 C.M.R. § 1.01(6)(b), as modified by 950 C.M.R. § 59.03(10). This is intended to give adequate notice to the “respondent,” the person or persons against whom the objection is made. The Commission provides a form for use in filing an objection, however, an objector can produce their own form.
    I can't tell if line-by-line objections are required (within 72h of filing? In PA, we have a week), or what.
