Voting in the Massachusetts State Primary will take place on Tuesday, Sept. 4. Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
WHO CAN VOTE AND FOR WHICH PARTY
Your enrollment as a voter will determine which party ballot you can choose.
A voter enrolled in one of the three Massachusetts political parties, can only vote the ballot for that specific party, represented by these letters:
- D – Democratic Party
- R – Republican Party
- L – Libertarian Party
A registered Democrat cannot vote a Republican or Libertarian ballot; a registered Republican cannot vote a Democratic or Libertarian ballot; a registered Libertarian cannot vote a Democratic or Republican ballot.
Only voters who are not affiliated with a political party, called Unenrolled (U – commonly known as No Party or “Independent”) can ask for any party ballot on Primary Day.
If you belong to a minor party which is not holding a primary – for example, the Green, Socialist, American Independent or Pirate parties – you will not have the chance to vote for in this election.
THE ISSUE WITH YOUR CENSUS
Voters who have not returned a town census this year are classified as “inactive” voters, a status that requires the voter to present identification at the polling station in order to return to the active voting rolls.
Voters should consider carrying an ID when going to vote to make the process simpler on election day.
