BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — Boston's preliminary mayoral election is on Tuesday, and the field will be narrowed down to two candidates in the final election this November. Polls citywide are open between 7:00 AM and 8:00 PM, and voters still on line when polls close are still allowed to vote.

You can find out if you're registered to vote here, and where to vote on the Secretary of the Commonwealth website, here.

If you haven't registered yet, you're out of time for Tuesday's election, but can still register for the general election on November 2, which you'll need to do by October 13.

Secretary of the Commonwealth Bill Galvin warned voters not to mail their ballot at this point for the Preliminary election, because it will not be received in time to be counted. If you have a mail-in ballot, Galvin said there are drop boxes around the city that will be accepting mail-in ballots until 8:00 PM Tuesday.
