BOSTON (AP) — Massachusetts residents who want to cast ballots in this year’s election have until Wednesday to register to vote, if they haven’t already done so.

Residents can register at their local city and town clerk’s offices or online at the secretary of state’s website .

The election is Tuesday, Nov. 6.

There are a number of big races on the ballot.

In the contest for governor, Democratic challenger Jay Gonzalez is taking on Republican incumbent Charlie Baker. In the race for U.S. Senate, Democratic incumbent Elizabeth Warren is hoping to hold off Republican challenger Geoff Diehl and independent Shiva Ayyadurai.

There are also a handful of ballot questions, including proposals that would require strict nurse-to-patient ratios in Massachusetts hospitals and repeal anti-discrimination protections for transgender people.
