The 2016 United States presidential election in Massachusetts was held on November 8, 2016, as part of the 2016 General Election in which all 50 states plus The District of Columbia participated. Massachusetts voters chose electors to represent them in the Electoral College via a popular vote pitting the Republican Party's nominee, businessman Donald Trump, and running mate Indiana Governor Mike Pence against Democratic Party nominee, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her running mate, Virginia Senator Tim Kaine.

On March 1, 2016, in the presidential primaries, voters expressed their preferences for the Democratic, Republican, and Green parties' respective nominees for President, as well as for state committee man, state committee woman, and city/town committee members for each party. Ballots also were available for members of the United Independent Party, but there were no candidates on the ballot. Registered members of each party only could vote in their party's primary, while voters who were unaffiliated could have chosen any one primary to vote in.

In the general election, Clinton won Massachusetts with 60% of the vote, and was assigned all 11 of the state's electoral votes. This marked the fourth consecutive election in which the Democratic candidate won over 60% of the vote, and the seventh in a row in which he or she won in every single county in the state, thus making Massachusetts and Hawaii the only states in which Trump failed to carry a single county.
