Voters To Go To Polls on Tuesday

By Adam Swift

Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, March 5 for the presidential primary.

Early voting for the primaries in the Democratic, Republican, and Libertarian parties began last Saturday, and will continue at Winthrop Town Hall this Thursday and Friday. Voting will be open in Town Hall on Thursday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Friday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.

On the Democratic ballot, President Joe Biden is expected to cruise to victory, although Dean Phillips and Marianne Williamson remain on the ballot in Massachusetts.

There are also uncontested races for Democratic State Committee Man and Committee Woman on the ballot, with Juan Pablo Jaramillo and Gabriela Gigi Coletta running.

The Republican presidential ballot has more candidates challenging former President Donald Trump, but only former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley has been actively campaigning. Also on the ballot are Chris Christie, Ryan Binkley, Vivek Ramaswamy, Asa Hutchinson, and Ron DeSantis.

Unlike the Democratic ballot, there is competition for State Committee Man and State Committee Woman on the Republican side. Incumbent Paul Ronakaitus is being challenged by Talen John Carvalho, and there is a three-way race for State Committee Woman between Vera Carducci, Rachel Miselman, and Jeannamarie Tamas.

On the Libertarian ballot, Jacob Hornberger, Michael Rectenwald, Chase Oliver, Michael Ter Maat, and Lars Mapstead are candidates for president.

Polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. on Tuesday, March 5. Voters in precincts 1, 2, 3, 5, and 6 will vote at the Old Middle School. Voters in precinct 4 will vote on Golden Drive.
