Today, Tuesday, Nov. 4, Belmont voters have the opportunity to cast ballots in Massachusetts General Election for state-wide candidates, federal office holders and four ballot questions.
Polling places are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Who can vote
All legally registered voters affiliated with any number of political parties and un-enrolled.
You may be asked for ID
Did you fill out your town census form mailed earlier in the year? If you did not, then you are known as an “inactive” voter. Luckily, an “inactive” voter may still vote but first must provide adequate identification proving the voter’s identity and current place of residence. Usually a Massachusetts Driver’s License or State issued ID are sufficient.
