The state primary election is Tuesday, Sept. 4, the day after Labor Day. For many offices on the ballot, the elected official will be decided on Sept. 4, not Nov. 6. In particular, many district races such as district attorney, state Senator and Representative, and Governor’s Council have only one party with primary candidates, potentially leading to primary winners running unopposed in the Nov. 6 general election.
Be sure to register to vote for this important election! The deadline is on August 15th in time for the September 4th primary. To register online, click here: https://www.sec.state.ma.us/OVR/Welcome.aspx
