Retiring Mass. Gov. Charlie Baker, in lock-step with leading Democrats are pushing to move the state’s traditional primary date back two weeks, to be held Sept. 6th instead of Sept. 20th.
Voters, who typically snooze during the summer months before engaging the fall election season will not have a rest, with the Sept. 6th date, or, the date will go unnoticed.
The long-serving Mass. secretary of state has stated that he needs more time to process ballots, and mail-in ballots post-primary, for the Nov. final elections.
