Now is a good time to register to vote if you’re not already registered, or if you need to change your address*. If you have a party preference and want to vote in the Democratic or Republican Primary, the deadline for submitting your registration or changing your address is 20 days prior to the election. For instance, The Democratic and Republican Primaries in Massachusetts will be held on Tuesday, February 5 2008, making the deadline for registration 1/10/2008 – this is usually about a 25 day gap they ask for in order to process all registeree’s.
