Sept 1, 2020 MA Primaries
Who can vote in the primary?
In Massachusetts, all registered voters may vote in the primary.
Members of political parties may vote only in their own party’s primary elections. There are four parties: Republican, Democrat, Green-Rainbow, and Libertarian. Unenrolled voters (commonly referred to as “Independents”) and members of political designations or minor parties may vote in the party primary of their choice. Choosing to vote in a particular party’s primary does NOT enroll you as a member of that party.

Party nominees for county, state, and district offices; US House of Representatives and US Senate.
