STATE HOUSE, BOSTON, DEC. 5, 2017...Every two years, the state holds an election. And every two years, voters head to the polls on the first Tuesday in November.

It's December and candidates are already running for a variety of statewide and district seats on Beacon Hill, but for now they're like marathoners who don't know where the finish line will be. According to the National Conference of State Legislatures, Massachusetts is the only state in the country right now with an asterisk next to the date for the state 2018 primaries.
