Final Day To Register For Mass. U.S. Senate Election

This article is more than 7 years old.

Time is running out to register to vote in Massachusetts' special U.S. Senate election.

Wednesday is the last day to sign up for those who want to cast ballots in the June 25 contest pitting Republican Gabriel Gomez against Democrat Edward Markey.

Residents can register in most cities and towns from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. In towns with fewer than 1,500 voters, registration must be open at least from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 8 p.m.

Those who are U.S. citizens, residents of Massachusetts, and who will be at least 18 years-old by election day can register.

Someone who has moved to a different community must register again.

Whichever candidate wins will fill the seat left vacant by the departure of John Kerry to become secretary of state.
