BOSTON — With seven weeks until Election Day, registered Massachusetts voters can expect to find a red booklet in their mailboxes in the coming days that will detail each of the four ballot questions they will face in the voting booth.

As required by the state constitution, Secretary of State William F. Galvin this week began mailing voter information booklets to all registered voters in the state. The booklet includes the full text of each of the four ballot questions, a summary of each question as prepared by the attorney general, pro and con statements from question supporters and opponents, the one-sentence statement that will accompany the question on the ballot, and other voting information.

Voters in greater Boston can expect to receive their booklets as soon as Tuesday, with delivery expected elsewhere in the state within the week, Galvin said Tuesday, Sept. 20. The booklet will also be available at post offices and other public locations, online, and printed in Spanish.

“We hope that as these voters receive this booklet it will give them the opportunity to consider these questions and to make final decisions on these questions that will be before them,” Galvin said.
