BOSTON (WWLP) – With less than a month to go before the party primaries, the state is now issuing absentee ballots. Democratic, Republican, and unenrolled voters may vote in primary elections for offices including governor, lieutenant governor, attorney general, and state treasurer, and in some locations primaries for the state legislature and countywide offices like district attorney.

If you believe that you will not be able to get to your polling place on Primary Day (September 9), you should apply for a ballot, either by mail or in-person at your local town clerk or election commissioner’s office. Any written request for a ballot received by mail will be accepted, provided it arrives by noon on the day before the primary.
