Agawam official agrees with online voting

AGAWAM, Mass. (WWLP) – Massachusetts voters will be able to register to vote online for the next Presidential election.

Agawam Town Clerk Richard Theroux on Friday endorsed the option offered by Secretary of the Commonwealth William Gavin.

Theroux told 22News, he’s certain registering online will be a success, “People not having the time to come down to the town hall, the city hall, registration timer not available, voting on line is probably a step in the future, but certainly this is the right step now.”

Theroux favors breaking with voting day tradition. He also supports elections held on Saturday. Theroux believes voting on Tuesday discourages many voters from going to the polls.
