Last Thursday, Massachusetts voters cast their ballots in the state primaries. Due to the Labor Day holiday, the election was held later in the week, landing on the first day of school for Boston Public Schools. Due these events and the fact that there were few contested races the voter turnout was less than 10 percent.
