File your 2015 absentee ballot application now!

A Special Primary Election will be held on Tuesday, March 3, 2015, in the First Suffolk Representative District, which is composed of 14 precincts in East Boston. The Special Election will fill a vacancy created when Representative Carlo Basile resigned from the Legislature.

The final election will take place on March 31, when the top vote getter in each political party will face off, as well as any unaffiliated candidates who have met the legal requirements. A full election calendar can be found on our website:

The final date to register to vote in the Special Primary Election is February 11, 2015.  Voter registration forms can be printed out from the website, found at many libraries and government offices, or can be requested by phone. If you are registered elsewhere in Boston, and have since moved to East Boston, you must change your address, in writing, in order to participate in the special election.

If you are one of the many residents, especially the elderly or those with limited mobility, who are qualified to vote by absentee ballot, the Commissioners remind you that you must file a new absentee ballot request every calendar year. The absentee ballot request form can be found on the website, or you may call the Election Department and one will be mailed to you.  

Please contact the Boston Election Department at 617-635-3767, with any questions.
