TONIGHT is the deadline for registering to vote in the special state primary to choose party candidates to run for the senate seat left vacant by John Kerry.
The city clerk's office will be open late to give residents more time to register. Residents have until 8PM to register.
According to the City of Woburn's website:
"This is the deadline to be eligible to vote in the Special Election on April 30th to select a new U.S. Senator. If you moved, changed your name, or your local census form was not received at city hall, you may encounter an issue at the polls. In some cases, you will have to fill out an affidavit and show identification at the polls. In other cases, you may not be able to vote. By acting now, you can avoid that inconvenience."
