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 Oâ€™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 Winthropâ€™s representative in Congress, and Garrett Gomez of Cohasset are vying for the Senate seat.
The winning candidate in Tuesdayâ€™s election will take over the Senate seat previously held by John Kerry, who left the position to become the Secretary of State. â€œMoâ€ Cowan has been serving as the interim U.S. Senator.
Elizabeth Warren is the Bay Stateâ€™s other U.S. Senator, having been elected to the position last November.
