Itâ€™s a big election year. The presidential race, and a hotly contested U.S. Senate race here in Massachusetts.Â Â
If you’re not registered to vote and want to do so this year, there’s a couple deadlines for signing up.Â Â
The Primary election is on Thursday, September 6. To vote in that election, you must be registered by August 17th, according to Secretary of the Commonwealth, William Galvin.Â Â
Election Day is Tuesday, November 6.Â To vote then, you have to register by October 17. You must be registered 20 days prior to the election you’re voting in.Â
To register to vote you must be a U.S. citizen, resident of Massachusetts and be at least 18 years old on or before Election Day. If you’ve moved, you must register again at your new address.Â
If you’re uncertain about your registration or have other questions, check with your city or town clerk or registrar of voters.
