The last day to register to vote in the Nov. 2 elections is Wednesday, city election commissioners reminded in a press release issued last week.

Cambridge residents not already registered can correct that until 8 p.m. that day at the commission’s offices, 51 Inman St.

Absentee Ballots are also available; voters unable to go to the polls on Election Day due to physical disability, religious belief or absence from the city — polls are open Election Day from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.; a list of polling places is here — may ask until noon Nov. 1. Absentee ballots can be mailed, or voters can vote at the commission office during regular hours: Mondays from 8:30 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Tuesdays through Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Fridays from 8:30 a.m. to noon. The office will also be open for absentee voting until 5 p.m. Oct. 29, a Friday, and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. the next day.

“If you need to visit the Election Commission and require the use of an elevator please utilize the basement entrance and someone from the staff will assist you,” the four commissioners said in the release. The elevator to their office is being renovated.
