BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Many offices in Massachusetts are up for grabs this year, including the governor, the secretary of state, and Congressional seats along with many local sheriffs and district positions.
Current Secretary of the Commonwealth Bill Galvin — who is seeking re-election himself — said nomination papers will be available to those candidates starting at 10:00 AM on Monday. From there, the race is on. Candidates will have until May 3 (for district and local races) or May 10 (for statewide and Congressional races) to get enough signatures to appear on the ballot.
The 2022 party primary date is set for Sept. 6, with the general election across the state on Nov. 8.
