Presidential Primary March 6 Changes To Ward 3 Precinct 2
Please take notice that changes will occur for the Presidential Primary Tuesday, March 6 in Ward 3 Precinct 2 because the Legislature created new Congressional Districts in Cambridge.
The middle of Cambridge is now in the 5th Congressional District. The eastern and northern part of Cambridge are now in the 7th Congressional District. Also, the Election Commission was mandated to change precinct boundary lines to reflect Federal Census population changes, therefore some voters will see their poll location change.
Voters going to the polls in Ward 3 Precinct 2, located at the Department of Public Works, 147 Hampshire Street, will vote in two sections of the polling place. This is because the Legislature divided the Precinct into two different Congressional Districts. This means, part of the precinct will be in the 7th Congressional District and designated as Ward 3 Precinct 2, and the other part will be in the 5th Congressional District and designated as Ward 3 Precinct 2A. There will be two separate voter lists and two ballot boxes. The ballot however, will be the same for the March 6 Presidential Primary.
The Cambridge Election Commission is taking steps to familiarize voters with these changes. All voters should have received a postcard with maps and information regarding in which Ward and Precinct a voter resides and votes.
