WEST SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - The June 25 Special Senate election is just under three weeks away, and today is your last chance to register if you haven't already.
Secretary of State William Galvin says that residents can register in most cities and towns until 8:00 tonight. In towns with fewer than 1,500 voters, registration must be open from at least 2:00 to 4:00 this afternoon, and from 7:00 to 8:00 tonight.
22News asked voters why there seems to be less interest in this race than the Elizabeth Warren/Scott Brown Senate election back in November. Paul Trinque of West Springfield told 22News he thinks people are sick of the negative ads, but he said it's no excuse not to care.
"It's absolutely important. They're our representatives in Washington. We need to be responsible in electing them, they're going to represent us," Trinque said.
To vote, you must be a U-S citizen, a resident of Massachusetts, and at least 18 on or before June 25, and if you've moved within the state, you must register in your new community.
