In honor of National Voter Registration Day, we’re giving you all the information you need on how and where to register to vote.
If you haven’t yet registered to vote, get it off your to-do list now. Tuesday is National Voter Registration Day, and thousands of local, state and national organizations have mobilized to make sure millions of people don’t miss the chance to cast their vote in this year’s elections. Locally, there is an event planned in Salem plus several events in Cambridge plus several neighborhoods in Boston. Six million people didn’t vote in the 2008 elections because they either did not know how to register or because they missed the voter registration deadline. The voter registration deadline for the General Election in November in Massachusetts is Oct. 17. Here’s information on how you can register in time for the Nov. 6 elections:
Joan Lovely and Eileen Duff won on Thursday and topped the ballot in Danvers too, and Daniel Bennett got enough write-in votes to make the ballot for state representative in November.
Winners in Thursday's Democratic Party primary - Joan Lovely and Eileen Duff - both topped the ballot on Thursday in Danvers. Joan Lovely was first in a field of four Democrats in the Second Essex District seat in the state Senate. Across the five community district, she received 50 percent of the vote. In Danvers, she got 55 percent of the vote. Republicans also gave Daniel Bennett, who currently serves as a selectmen, the required 200 write-in votes that will mean he has enough to go on the November general election ballot for the state representative, the Salem News reported. Eileen Duff, who won the Democratic primary for Governor's Councilor from the Fifth District, won 29 percent of the vote in Danvers.
