First Malden Election Day with New Voting Map, featuring 27 Voting Precincts, most in city history

  The State Primary Election will be held on Tuesday, September 6 in the city of Malden and statewide. Voters will select a new Governor, Lieutenant Governor and several other statewide posts, while also voting for representatives in the Mass. House as well as Mass. Senate. This election will be historic in that it will feature the most polling places in Malden city history: 27, representing 27 precincts within the eight city voting Wards.

  Early voting begins in Malden on Saturday, August 27 for the upcoming state primary election. Polls will be open on primary election day, Sept. 6, from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. The State Election is then set for Nov. 8 with a voter registration deadline of Oct. 29.
