A city in western Massachusetts is taking a step to encourage people to vote Tuesday.
Springfield Election Commissioner Gladys Oyola said a citywide robocall will be made on election eve with a message she has recorded in both English and Spanish.
It is a reminder that Tuesday is Election Day. The message includes the hours polls will be open and a phone number people can call if they have questions about voting.
"It is a pretty simple and effective way to reach the most people possible," said Oyola.
Springfield has the highest number of registered voters in its history – more than 106,000 –
but turnout for the September preliminary was a record low 5.39 percent.
