BOSTON (AP) - Early voting starts next week in Massachusetts, but don’t expect to see Gov. Charlie Baker casting his ballot ahead of time.

The Republican told reporters Thursday that he’s a fan of waiting until Election Day to vote.

Baker says if you vote before Election Day you never know what you might miss.

Voting officially begins in Massachusetts on Monday, two weeks ahead of Election Day.

Massachusetts adopted early voting in legislation in 2014, but the presidential election is the first time voters will get a chance to cast votes early.

Although ballots can be cast early, they won’t be counted until Election Day.

The state has created a website to help voters find early voting locations in their cities and towns.

Election Day is Nov. 8.
