Winthrop residents will go to the polls Tuesday (June 25) to cast their ballots in the U.S. Senate special election.
Polls will be on open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the Winthrop Middle School Gymnasium (Precincts 1, 2, and 5), the Winthrop Senior Center (Precincts 3 and 6), and O’Connell Hall on Golden Drive (Precinct 4).
Two candidates, Congressman Edward J. Markey of Malden, who has served in the House of Representatives for 37 years and is Winthrop’s representative in Congress, and Garrett Gomez of Cohasset are vying for the Senate seat.
The winning candidate in Tuesday’s election will take over the Senate seat previously held by John Kerry, who left the position to become the Secretary of State. “Mo” Cowan has been serving as the interim U.S. Senator.
Elizabeth Warren is the Bay State’s other U.S. Senator, having been elected to the position last November.
