Everything You Need To Know About Voting On Super Tuesday

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — If you didn't take advantage of last week's early voting opportunities, this Tuesday is your last chance to cast a ballot for your party's presidential nominee.

On Tuesday, March 3, Massachusetts voters will be able to head to the polls between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. If you're in line by 8 p.m., you will be able to vote.

If you're unable to make it in person, and you have secured an absentee ballot, it must be returned to your local election office by noon on Monday, March 2.

For Massachusetts voters, the deadline to register to vote or to change your party affiliation for the primary has already passed. You can check your registration status by clicking here.

If you are already registered with a party affiliation, you can only vote on the ballot of that party. If you're 'unenrolled' or independent, you can select any party's ballot on which to case your vote.

If it's your first time voting in Massachusetts in a federal election, if you're an inactive voter, or if the poll worker has "reasonable suspicion," you may be required to show ID at the polls, so be sure to take it with you.
