For the first time in a Presidential Primary cycle, early voting will be made available to the citizens of Massachusetts, one week ahead of the Super Tuesday contests, where the Commonwealth’s pledged/bound delegates will be up for contention.

Early Voting will take place this business week in select polling locations until Friday, February 28th. Polling locations and hours will vary throughout the week. Visit the Secretary of the Commonwealth’s website to find early voting locations in your municipality. Please note that you can vote at any early voting location within your municipality. You cannot vote outside of your registered municipality.

If you are early voting in person, the process will be no different from that of an election day. You will be checked in by a polling official and after you fill out your ballot, you will be asked to seal it in an envelope and hand it in for counting on March 3.

If you received your early voting ballot via mail, be sure to carefully review the included instructions and deadlines to ensure successful submission.

The Massachusetts primary is semi-closed, meaning that voters who are unenrolled to a political party (independent) are allowed to vote. Voters with a party designation will receive the ballot for their particular party. Check your voter registration status before heading to the polls.

For more information on early voting and the primary day, visit the Elections Division page on Secretary William Galvin’s website or contact the Elections Division at 1-800-462-VOTE (8683). If you are not participating in early voting your voice can still be heard on the Massachusetts Presidential Primary statewide Election Day on Tuesday March 3, 2020.

If you have additional questions, contact the Office of Consumer Affairs and Business Regulation by calling our Consumer Hotline at (617) 973-8787, or toll-free in MA at (888) 283-3757, Monday through Friday, from 9 am-4:30 pm. Follow the Office on Facebook and Twitter, @Mass_Consumer. The Baker-Polito Administration’s Office of Consumer Affairs and Business Regulation along with its five agencies work together to achieve two goals: to protect and empower consumers through advocacy and education, and to ensure a fair playing field for Massachusetts businesses. The Office also oversees the state’s vehicular and customized wheelchair Lemon Laws and Arbitration Programs, Data Breach reporting, Home Improvement Contractor Programs, and the MA Do Not Call Registry.
