Deadline for voting registration is Oct. 6

LEXINGTON – (Sept. 24, 2014) The deadline to register to vote in the Nov. 4 general election is Oct. 6.

VoteAcross the commonwealth, schools and civic organizations commemorated National Voter Registration Day Sept. 23 by conducting voter registration drives to maximize participation in the upcoming election.

County clerks’ offices will accept voter registration cards until close of business on Oct. 6, and mail-in voter registration applications must be postmarked by that date.

Voters who have recently moved must update their registration information by Oct. 6.
