Vote Early Boston, a citywide effort to allow early voting for the upcoming 2018 state election, is taking place October 22 through November 2.
Boston’s main early voting site is City Hall, with voting from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, and from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Voters are encouraged to enter City Hall through the North Side entrance to access the early voting location on the second floor.
Boston City Hall is the closest early voting site for North End / Waterfront residents.
There will also be a full weekend of early voting on Saturday, October 27, and Sunday, October 28. During early voting weekend, there will be nine voting locations open on both days — one in each City Council district — from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. See locations here.
Unlike traditional polling, you don’t have to vote at your assigned polling location. All ballot styles will be available at every early voting location.
Voters may also vote early by mail or return their ballots in person at any early voting location. Voters interested in voting by mail must send their early voting request by 12 p.m. on Friday, November 2. Unlike Absentee Voting, no excuse is needed to vote early. Any registered Boston voter can vote early at any early voting location.
If you miss the early voting period, you can still vote on Election Day, November 6.
