To vote, you must be a US citizen, a resident of Massachusetts, and at least 18 on or before the June 25 special election, the secretary of state’s office said. If you’ve moved within the state, you must register in your new community to be able to vote.

Election offices will be open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday in most communities. In towns with less than 1,500 voters, the offices must be open at least from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. and from 7 to 8 p.m., the secretary of state's office said.
