Get your ballots ready, Boston.

We are just five weeks away from the State Primary election on Tues., Sept. 6. This year, the City of Boston created 20 new voting precincts for the upcoming fall elections, increasing the number of precincts from 255 to 275.

Following the 2020 US Census, the City’s Election Department evaluated the precincts and voter experiences from recent elections and made changes to help reduce wait times + increase voter access.

The precincts were officially redrawn in October — the last time Boston redrew the voting precincts was nearly 100 years ago in 1924. At the time, a state appointed commission created the wards + precinct structure that we use today. This is what the precinct map currently looks like.

What does this mean for this year’s election?

Meet the new polling locations throughout the city. Some of the new locations include:

  • Charlestown Boys and Girls Club, 15 Green St.
  • Fenway Center, 77 St. Stephen St.
  • Museum of Fine Arts, 465 Huntington Ave.
  • North End Library, 25 Parmenter St.
  • Old South Church, 645 Boylston St.
