Early voting starts Monday

80 percent of Massachusetts communities will participate

Secretary of the Commonwealth William F. Galvin reminds voters that early voting in Massachusetts begins Monday, October 24 and will run through Friday, November 4.

“This is the first time we are conducting early voting in Massachusetts,” Secretary Galvin said. “Cities and towns set their own times and places to vote, and you can check the times and
locations in your community by going to MassEarlyVote.com, or checking with your town or city hall.”

More than 80 percent of the communities have included hours on Saturday, October 29 in the one weekend that falls in the early voting period. Secretary Galvin created a grant program to
encourage communities to hold weekend voting hours, according to a statement from Secretary Galvin's office.

Ballots cast in the early voting period will not be counted until Election Day, November 8th.

Check with your local Town Clerk's office to determine your town's early voting arrangements.
