State Primary is Tuesday

Polls will be open tomorrow, Sept. 1, in Abington starting at 7 a.m. for the 2020 State Primary Election.

Voters can cast ballots between 7 a.m. and 8 p.m. at Emerald Hall, which is located at 30 Central St.

Almost 2,000 Abington voters have already filled out their ballots through early and absentee voting, said Town Clerk Leanne Adams. The high number is driven by changes to state voting laws that make it easier to people to cast ballots early, as well as a desire amongst some to avoid possibly standing in lines in public during a pandemic.

In 2018, 2,857 Abington voters came to the polls for that year’s state primary elections.

The highest profile race is on the Democratic ballot where Congressman Joseph Kennedy III is challenging Ed Markey for his U.S. Senate seat.

Democratic Congressman Stephen Lynch also faces a primary challenge from Robbie Goldstein.

There are also four candidates for two Plymouth County Commissioner seats: Gregory Hanley, of Plymouth; Michael Bradley, of Marshfield; Carlos Da Silva, of Hingham; and John Riordan, of Marshfield.

The only contested race on the Republican ballot features Shiva Ayyadurai and Kevin O’Connor running for U.S. Senate.

The Libertarian and Rainbow parties do not have a primary ballot.
