"In a normal November election, absentee voting period is 45-day period," says registrar Sherri Lachetta. "For primaries, it's a 30-day period. So, next Monday our absentee voting period starts."

The primary also allows people whoa re under 18 to vote. As long as you will turn 18 by November 4 of this year, you are allowed to vote in the primary next month. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
