For John, BLUF: Primary coming up. Be registered.
Below is important information from the City of Lowell Election & Census Commission. Their Lordships, the Commissioners, chose to underline the deadline for registration, Wednesday, April 10 at 8 PM. I chose to underline the sentence that says it is also the deadline for changing one's party affiliation if one is a registered Republican or Democrat and wish to vote in the other party's primary. If you are a wispy-washy Unenrolled you can pick a party ballot on the day at your polling place.
The Lowell Election & Census Commission announces that the deadline to register to vote in the special April 30 US Senate Primary is Wednesday, April 10 at 8pm. The Election office is City Hall will be open until 8pm on Wednesday, April 10. We are located in the basement of Lowell City Hall, 375 Merrimack Street, Room 5. Our normal office hours are weekdays 8am to 5pm.Enough said.
Mail-in voter registration cards that are postmarked by the April 10 deadline will be accepted for registration in the special primary election.
Lowell voters who are current in the census remain on the Active Voter’s List but must inform us in writing if they changed their name or city address, or wish to change their party affiliation. April 10 is also the deadline for changing party registration for purposes of the special US Senate Primary.
Lowell residents who wish to check their registration status or would like to request a mail-in voter registration form may call the Election & Census Commission at 978-674-1200.
