LEICESTER, Mass. — The Leicester Town Clerk is reminding residents that the State Primary is set for Sep. 6 this year, which falls on a Thursday as opposed to the typical Tuesday.
"I would like to make people aware because we are all programmed for Tuesday elections," said Town Clerk Debbie Davis.
The date of the primary was changed earlier this year to avoid conflict with the Jewish holiday Rosh Hashanah.
The polls will be open from 7 a.m. until 8 p.m. on the day of the election, with all precincts to vote in the Leicester Town Hall at 3 Washburn Square.
Additionally, while the last day to register to vote before the State Primary is Friday Aug. 17. Davis explained that because the Town Clerk's office will not open on Friday’s Voter Registration Cards will instead be available at the Leicester Police Station from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m. that day.
Residents must fill out and leave the registration card at the Police Station, she said.
