BOSTON, Mass. (WWLP) - For the second time in a little over seven months, Bay State voters are casting ballots in a U.S. Senate election.
This one is between Democrat Ed Markey and Republican Gabriel Gomez.
The seat opened up when Sen, John Kerry resigned to become Secretary of State.
But being June, the turnout for this special election is expected to be relatively light.
Both Markey and Gomez had a busy Monday with appearances and rallies across the state
The contest pits Markey, a veteran legislator, who was elected to Congress 37 years ago against, Gomez, a newcomer to politics, who is a former Navy SEAL and now a businessman.
