After a summer of campaigning, primary day is here in Massachusetts.

Candidates for statewide offices, including governor and secretary of state, and federal offices, including U.S. House, are out making their case to be on November's ballot. There are also many contested state legislative primaries.

Polls across the state are open until 8 p.m. If you're still not sure where to vote or who's running, check out our voter guide.

About 12 percent of registered voters in Boston — roughly 400,000 people — have cast their ballots as of 3 p.m.

Once polls close, we'll have full results here on wbur.org.
