Low turnout observed for early voting in Massachusetts
By contrast, demand is high for mail-in ballots for the September 6 primary
The new election law in Massachusetts gives voters options for how to cast their ballots for the primary and general election.
More than 600,000 mail-in ballots were requested for the primaries. About 250,000 ballots have been marked and returned to city and town election offices.
A week-long period of in-person early voting started last Saturday.
