Any registered Mass. voter can vote early, and it’s a similar process to registering: You can go to your local early voting location, or send a pdf application to receive an early ballot by mail. Or if early voting isn’t for you, you can still plan to head to your polling place on Election Day.
If you go to early vote in person, an election official will check you in and, once you’ve filled out your ballot, they’ll enclose it and add it to others that will be counted come election night.
But unlike traditional polling, according to the city of Boston, you don’t have to vote at your assigned polling location and all ballot styles will be available at every location.
To see more information on each city and town’s voting locations and schedules, as they all have different hours, check the Secretary of the Commonwealth’s website.
Boston City Hall will be open for early voting Monday through Friday, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., but on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, City Hall will also stay open until 8 p.m. for early voters.
Information on the candidates can be found on the secretary’s website, too.
The early voting period will end on Friday, Feb. 28, with the Mass. presidential primary taking place on Tuesday, March 3.
