Boston Voters Line Up In Snow For Last Day Of In-Person Early Voting


BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Registered voters have been filing in and out of Boston City Hall for the last day of early in-person voting in Massachusetts.

Despite it being the first snow of the season, there was still a line with approximately 100 voters along Congress Street Friday afternoon, according to Mayor Walsh's office. Any voters in line by 5 p.m. Friday will be allowed to vote early in-person.

Officials said the deadline to mail in any ballots has passed, so anyone with a completed mail-in ballot must return it either in-person, or at a verified dropbox location. Voters planning to drop off their ballots in a dropbox this weekend are being asked to do it before 2 p.m. Saturday.

Due to security concerns, the Secretary of the Commonwealth has issued a directive urging all municipalities to empty and lock all ballot dropboxes no later than 5 p.m. Saturday until 12 p.m. Sunday.

When they are reopened on Sunday November 1, the dropboxes will be available 24/7 through 8 p.m. Tuesday November 3rd.
