Thursday, Sept. 6 is also primary day throughout the state, so do not forget to vote. Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 8 p.m. According to Town Clerk Anita Tekle, the primary provides for the three political parties in Massachusetts – Democratic, Republican and Green-Rainbow – to choose candidates to represent the party at the Nov. 6 State Election. Positions on the Primary Ballot are U.S. Senator, U.S. Representative in Congress, Governor’s Councillor, State Senator, State Representative, Clerk of Courts, Register of Deeds and Sheriff. Sample ballots may be viewed on the Town’s Web Site – www.concordma.gov (click “Elections & Voting” on Home Page) and are posted in the Town House lobby. Political parties not recognized in Massachusetts (e.g., Libertarian) do not choose candidates at the State Primary.
