Window for early voting opens in Massachusetts

BOSTON (AP) — The early voting period for the general election is underway in Massachusetts.

Starting on Monday and through Nov. 2, voters who wish to do so may cast their ballots in advance of Election Day, which is on Nov. 6.

Each city and town has its own times and locations for early voting. Details are available through the Massachusetts Secretary of State’s website or by contacting local city and town elections officials.

Voters also have the option of requesting an early ballot by mail.

Ballots that are cast early are put in envelopes to be counted on Election Day.

This is the second state election in which early voting is available in Massachusetts. The first was the 2016 presidential election.
