BOSTON (AP) — Political hopefuls who want to get their names on the September primary ballots in Massachusetts can begin picking up nomination papers.

Massachusetts Secretary of State William Galvin said nomination papers for the Sept. 6 Democratic, Republican, and Green-Rainbow state party primaries will be available on Tuesday at locations around the state.

The nomination papers cover the nine new Congressional districts and the new state Legislative districts created last fall based on the 2010 U.S. Census.

Nomination papers are also available for candidates hoping to run for the U.S. Senate and county offices.

Papers are available at the secretary of state’s offices in Boston, Springfield and Fall River and at more than a dozen city and town halls.

Candidates have until May 1 to submit signed nomination papers to local election officials.

    As usual the elections are coming, it’s time once again to listen to false promises and action plans that never happens. I really wish politics today would change, instead of promises. It would be nice to see changes and reforms to push through.
