Important information for voters

Here is some important information for voters from the League of Women Voters of Newton:

• The State Primary Election is on Tuesday, September 4th, which is the day after Labor Day

• If you need an absentee ballot (because there is no early voting in this September election), the deadline to file an application is on Friday, August 31st. This is the Friday before Labor Day.

• The League of Women Voters has worked with partner organizations to create several Candidates’ Forums for voters to learn more about the candidates and their positions:
o 4th Congressional District: Kennedy and Rucinski
o District 3 Governor’s Council (Carter-Devaney) and Middlesex County DA (Patalano-Ryan)
