Quick! Check your voter registration. Today is the last day to register to vote in the upcoming Massachusetts presidential primary.

Residents here have until 8 p.m. Wednesday to register online or in-person to vote in time for next month's election. Your city or town hall may have extended hours today; call ahead to confirm.

The primary takes place on March 3. It's part of "Super Tuesday" voting, when 14 states, including Massachusetts, will hold primaries early in the election season.

You'll only have to wait about two weeks to vote, though: early voting will start on Monday, Feb. 24. Check with your city or town hall for early voting hours.

Beyond the Bay State, voters will cast ballots in Alabama, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Maine, Minnesota, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont and Virginia.

Here's what the state's online voter registration portal looks like:
