Deadline Today to Register for U.S. Senate Primary Voting

A special election is being held to fill the seat left open by Secretary of State John Kerry.

Voters have until 8 p.m. this evening to register to vote in the April 30 primary for the U.S. Senate seat left vacant by now Secretary of State John Kerry.

Final voter registration on April 10 will take place during extended hours at Town Hall from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. Absentee ballots are also now available for the primary.

Call the Braintree Town Clerk's office at 781-794-8240 with any questions.

Candidates on the ballot:

Democratic

U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-South Boston)

U.S. Rep. Ed Markey (D-Malden)

Republican

Michael Sullivan

Gabriel Gomez

State Rep. Dan Winslow (R-Norfolk)

Independent

Jack E. Robinson

Only those unaffiliated with a political party or those enrolled as Democrats or Republicans will be able to vote in the primary.

The Libertarian and Green-Rainbow parties did not meet a turnout threshold in last fall's election, removing them from this special election primary. Town Clerk Joe Powers said that if any of the approximately 130 Braintree residents registered with those parties would like to vote April 30, they must change their registration by the April 10 deadline.

For the June 25 general special election, the voter registration deadline is 8 p.m. on June 5.
