Hudson – Registered voters will be able vote before Election Day for the first time ever in Massachusetts. Early voting will begin Monday, Oct. 24, and continue through Friday, Nov. 4. Prior to the enactment of this new law, the only way a registered voter was allowed to vote prior to Election Day was through absentee voting. Unlike absentee voting, early voting is for every registered voter.
Regardless of whether a voter wants to take advantage of early voting, vote absentee or vote at the polls on Election Day, the first step is making sure you are registered. To check to see if you are registered to vote, and to find information on how to register, visit the Secretary of the Commonwealth’s website, www.sec.state.ma.us/ele. To register online, visit www.RegisterToVoteMA.com.
Early voting can be done in person or by mail. In Hudson, early voting is available in person or by mail, Oct. 24 – Nov. 4 from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Town Hall, 78 Main St. Extended hours are scheduled for Wednesday, Oct. 26, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.; Wednesday, Nov. 2, 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.; and Saturday, Oct. 29, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.
