Mass. Voters Hoping To Register Must Act Fast

Massachusetts residents hoping to vote in the Nov. 6 election have to act fast. Wednesday is the final day to register to vote.

City and town halls will be open from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. In towns with fewer than 1,500 voters, registrars of voters will be available at least from 2 to 4 p.m. and from 7 to 8 p.m.

The presidential contest between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney is at the top of the ballot, but Massachusetts voters will also be deciding the U.S. Senate race pitting Republican Sen. Scott Brown against Democrat Elizabeth Warren.

Voters will also choose members of Congress, state lawmakers and other officials.

Voters will decide three statewide initiatives on the availability of motor vehicle repair information, the prescribing of medication to end life, and the medical use of marijuana.
