"180 register in one day," according to a Registrar of Voters employee.
The deadline for registering to vote in Massachusetts was August 17, 2012 and as of today, hundreds, if not thousands, of new voter registration forms have been received by the Medford Registrar of Voters both by walk-in and mail-in.
Earlier this month, and as the result of a lawsuit, 478,000 people on public assistance were mailed voter registration forms.
At the time of this article, there was no breakdown as to how many of the potential new voters were registered as Democrat, Republican, Independent or any of the other approximately 29 recognized political parties in Massachusetts.
The State Primary election is Thursday, Sep 6, 2012 and the General Election is Tuesday, November 6, 2012.
