Early voting locations across the state will offer weekend hours, this Saturday and Sunday, not next weekend.
More than 260 early voting locations are expected to open on Saturday and 30 more on Sunday, giving voters the opportunity to cast their ballot before the November 6 election.
“We know there’s been a lot of distractions with the Red Sox, and we’ve got Halloween and a lot of other factors,” said Massachusetts Secretary of State William Galvin. “But this is a great opportunity for people to vote and not have the pressure of lines, and do it on their own schedule.”
The Secretary of State has a section on his website, listing all of the Massachusetts cities and towns that offer early voting. The communities on that list provide the hours they are open, and the exact location of the polling place.
Unlike absentee ballots, if you choose early voting, you won’t have to say what is preventing you from voting on Election Day.
Massachusetts residents who choose to vote early can not vote again in person or by absentee ballot.
Early voting began on October 22 and polling locations are working to provide extra hours until November 2, when early voting stops, four days before Election Day.
