Presidential Primary is Tuesday

Tuesday, March 6th is the Presidential Primary in Massachusetts. Polls will be open from 7 a.m.-8 p.m..

Here is some helpful information from the City Clerk’s Office and the Registrars of Voters to make your voting experience more pleasant:

Since this is a primary, unenrolled voters (commonly called independents) will need to declare themselves in order to vote. That means, that they will have to choose in which party primary they wish to vote. After voting in the party primary of their choice, unenrolled voters automatically remain unenrolled and do not need to change their registration.

Democrat, Republican and Green-Rainbow Party voters can vote in their party’s primary only.

Libertarians, People’s Party or other party designations cannot vote in this primary.

While the vast majority of voters do NOT have to show identification, please bring proper identification to the polls with you. There are some instances where identification is required.

If you are not sure if you are registered, where you vote or don’t know your party registration, call the Registrars of Voters at 617-394-2296. They will be glad to help you.
