Local election offices will also offer in-person voter registration in at least one location in town on Saturday until 8 p.m. Galvin said most cities and towns are offering registration at their early voting sites so residents can register and vote at the same time.
This is the first time voters can register during the early voting period. Deadlines were extended by 10 days due to the coronavirus pandemic.MORE NEWS: TD Garden Capacity Increases As Bruins Head Into Playoffs
“This is your absolute last chance to get registered for November,” Galvin said. “Even if you think you are registered, you should still double check. If you moved since you last voted, make sure you’re registered where you live now. If you aren’t registered by Saturday, you can’t vote.”
