Here’s what’s on the ballot


Tuesday is the Bay State’s primary day and the last day to cast a ballot in several statewide races.

A Republican ballot will include contests for governor and lieutenant governor. Former state Rep. Geoff Diehl of Whitman is running alongside former Danvers state Rep. Leah Cole Allen against Wrentham businessman Chris Doughty and state Rep. Kate Campanale of Spencer.

Cape Cod attorney James McMahon is running unopposed on the Republican ballot for the Attorney General’s office, and Rayla Campbell of Whitman is running for Secretary of the Commonwealth.

Anthony Amore of Winchester is the only candidate that can boast outgoing Gov. Charlie Baker’s endorsement, and he’s running unopposed on the Republican ballot to fill the state auditor’s office. Auditor Suzanne Bump is not seeking reelection.

The Republican Party did not nominate a candidate to run against unopposed incumbent State Treasurer Deb Goldberg.

Democrats will see two names in the column for nomination to the governor’s office. Attorney General Maura Healey will be on the ballot alongside state Sen. Sonia Chang-Diaz, though Chang-Diaz stopped campaigning in June — leaving Healey the presumptive nominee.

Three candidates — Salem Mayor Kim Driscoll, Acton state Rep. Tami Gouveia and Longmeadow state Sen. Eric Lesser — hope to be the party’s nominee for lieutenant governor.
