Time running out to register for Mass. primaries
Apr. 09, 2013
BOSTON (AP) — Time is running out to register to vote in the Republican and Democratic primaries in Massachusetts' special U.S. Senate election.
Wednesday is the last day to register for those who haven't registered or who want to change their party affiliation.
Residents will be able to register in most cities and towns from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday. In towns with fewer than 1,500 voters, registration must be open at least from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 8 p.m.
Those who are U.S. citizens, residents of Massachusetts, and who will be at least 18 years-old by primary day are eligible to register.
Someone who has moved to a different community must register again to vote.
The primaries are scheduled for April 30. The special election for the Senate is on June 25.
