The City of Woburn has absentee ballots available for those who won't be able to make it to the polls for the special state primary to decide party candidates to run for former Senator John Kerry's seat.
According to a notice on the city's web site, absentee ballots are now available for all voters for the Special State Primary Election to be held on Tuesday, April 30 to fill the vacancy in the office of U.S. Senator from Massachusetts.
The deadline for filing an application for an absentee ballot is Monday, April 29, at noon. A written application must be filed by all voters seeking to vote by absentee ballot. Ballots may be mailed to voters upon written request or a voter may vote by absentee ballot in the office of the City Clerk in City Hall.
To be eligible to vote by absentee ballot, the voter must be out of the city during the hours the polls are open, have a physical inability to get to the polls, or have a religious belief that prohibits the voter from voting on election day.
