Mass. politicians push Thursday primary
BOSTON (AP) -- Massachusetts political hopefuls are reminding voters to head to the polls Thursday, Sept. 6, after the original Tuesday date for the state's primary election was changed.
Massachusetts voters will be able to weigh in on races in the Republican and Democratic Congressional, local and state district races Thursday.
Politicians who are seeking votes in this election are hammering the date change into the minds of voters throughout the state.
The election, which was originally scheduled for Tuesday, Sept. 18, was moved due to a conflict with the Jewish holiday, Rosh Hashanah.
Secretary of State William Galvin said he expects voter turnout to reach around 15 percent, with the largest percentage of voter turnout occurring in western Massachusetts where there are more contested local races.
