Time To Vote Is Today

Updated 9/1/20: You may also drop off your mail-in ballet at City Hall first floor Congress St entrance up until 8 pm today (9/1) or vote in person instead at the polls. Read below for vote in person safety instructions and the opportunity to complete the 2020 Census simultaneously.  

The time to vote is today. The state primary election is Tuesday, September 1, 2020

Important primary races this year include our U.S. Senator, U.S. Representative, MA Senator and MA Representative.


In-person voting will take place at the Condon School Cafeteria at 200 D. St (behind the Laboure Center) on September 1 from 7 am to 8 pm.

Please remember to wear a mask and keep 6 feet apart while in line and voting. You will be asked to sanitize your hands upon entry. Poll workers will be wearing appropriate PPE. Voting marking pens will be provided with your ballot and disinfected after each use. More details.

Plus complete the 2020 Census on your way in or out! There will be a booth in front of the Condon School from 7 am to 11 am and from 3 pm to 8 pm.


If you have moved recently, check your voter registration status. If you are new to the neighborhood, welcome. You can register to vote here. The voter registration deadline for the State Primaries is August 22, 2020. 

Voting will be different this year because of the pandemic. Voters will have the additional option to vote by mail. In July, the Massachusetts legislature approved a voting by mail-in ballot  to ensure that all registered voters concerned about voting in person due to COVID-19 precautions have another option to exercise their right to vote. You should have received an application for a mail-in ballot in the mail already. If you didn't receive an application to vote by mail, you can download the 2020 Vote by Mail Application

Helpful Application Completion Tips
  • Select a ballot for the September State Primaries, November General Election or both
  • Include your signature (without one the application is invalid)
  • Postage has been paid — just drop it in the mail
  • If you are around City Hall, you may drop off your application in the Election Department dropbox located on the third floor.
  • State Primaries vote-by-mail ballot applications must be received by Wednesday, August 26, 2020
  • General Election vote-by-mail ballot applications must be received by Wednesday, October 28, 2020


Early in-person voting will be available at City Hall Monday through Friday (August 22 through August 28)  from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., extended to 8 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday evening.

Early in-person voting will be available at the Condon School at 200 D St from 11 am to 7 pm on Saturday, August 22nd and Sunday, August 23.
