This year's Early Voting period begins Monday, October 22, and runs through Friday, November 2.

The City of Boston Election Commission today announced the release of the 2018 Vote Early Boston schedule, which was unanimously approved by the Boston Election Commission Board. This year's Early Voting period begins Monday, October 22, and runs through Friday, November 2. During that time, voters registered in Boston will be able to cast their ballots in person prior to the November 6th State Election.

"Ensuring all Boston voters are able to vote conveniently, and on their own schedule, is paramount to ensuring voter turnout," said Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh. "Voting is core to our democracy, and I encourage Boston voters to take advantage of all the resources the City provides for elections."

The schedule features City Hall as the main Early voting polling location.  City Hall will be open for voting Monday through Friday, during normal business hours (9 a.m. to 5 p.m.) during the two week period. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, City Hall will be open until 8:00 pm for early voting.   

Early Voting "pop-up" polling locations will also be available throughout the city on Tuesdays and Thursdays during the early voting period. Those locations will be open from 12 p.m until 8 p.m. and are convenient to all neighborhoods.

This year's schedule also includes a full weekend of early voting on October 27(Saturday) and 28 (Sunday). During early voting weekend there will be nine voting locations open on both days, one in each city council district, from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.

"I would like to commend the staff of the Election Department for doing an excellent job developing this schedule, and to Mayor Walsh for providing the resources to make voting more accessible to all," said Karen Chen, Executive Director of the Chinese Progressive Association.

Any voter registered in Boston may vote at any early voting location. Unlike Absentee Voting, an explanation is no longer needed to vote early. Any Boston voter who wishes to vote early may. For more information on Vote Early Boston, please visit here.
