BOSTON (WBZ-AM) -- Wednesday is the last day to register to vote in the November 6 State Election--and Massachusetts Secretary of State Bill Galvin is reminding potential voters what steps they can take to get registered.
Galvin said you can check your status via the state's online voter registration system, found here. Those who have not previously registered, or who have recently moved, need to register today, October 17, in order to vote in the midterms.
"They can register online at my official website if they have a relationship with the Registry of Motor Vehicles," Galvin told WBZ NewsRadio 1030. "Or, this is probably the most definite way--local city or town offices, registers will be open until 8 p.m. to register them. Particularly if they have some question of their status or change of name, or something like that, it's probably best to do that."
The online registration is open until 11:59 p.m. You can also mail in your vote, as long as it is postmarked by today.
Galvin told WBZ NewsRadio 1030 he expects the trend of more people registering to continue.
"We saw an uptick in registration really since the beginning of this administration," Galvin said. "We had very active primaries in many parts of the state, and we had a very good turnout in the primaries. Many people registered for the primaries, and are obviously on the roll still. It's too early to get a final number, but at this point, we have over four million eligible persons who are eligible to vote in Massachusetts."
