BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Close to 2.6 million registered voters took part in early voting in Massachusetts, which is equal to two-thirds of the votes cast in the state in the 2016 election.
According to Secretary of the Commonwealth William Galvin's office, nearly half of Boston's roughly 430,000 registered voters applied to vote early either in-person or by mail.
Sudbury, Lexington, Eastham, Concord, Needham and Wellesley had among the highest voter turnout in the state, each with more than 70 percent turnout.
Springfield, New Bedford, Lawrence, Fall River, Holyoke and Chelsea had some of the lowest voter turnouts in the state during the early voting period, each with less than 30 percent.
Galvin's office said roughly ten percent of voters in the state who received an early ballot had still not returned it by Saturday afternoon. Click here to find your local ballot drop box.
