EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — It’s a week until Election Day 2018. William Galvin, Secretary of the Commonwealth for Massachusetts, sent out a reminder that Tuesday, Oct. 30, marks four days left to vote early; early voting closes on Friday, Nov. 2.

To cast an early ballot in Massachusetts, you must find an early voting location through the Commonwealth’s website. Times and dates vary.

This will be the second state election in which early voting is available in Massachusetts. The first was the 2016 presidential election.

Time’s also ticking down for Rhode Island voters. In the September primary, more than 2,300 people had cast “emergency mail ballots” on the Monday before the Wednesday polling day. Voters who attest they may not be able to make it in person to their polling place on Election Day can cast an emergency mail ballot in the 20 days before an election. It’s allowed a lot of people to start de facto “early voting,” John Marion of good government group Common Cause Rhode Island said in September.

If you need an emergency Rhode Island mail ballot, you must apply at your municipality’s board of canvassers at the city or town hall, it must be witnessed by two individuals or a licensed notary, and it must be returned to the State Board of Elections in Providence by 8 p.m. on Election Day.
