With the General Election just one week away, it’s important to have basic voting information. Do you know where to vote? Do you know how to vote?
The Rhode Island Voter Information Center (https://vote.sos.ri.gov/) has helpful information for first time voters or any voters who want additional information.
Check your voter record: By providing some basic information you can access your voter record. This allows you to edit your voter record, print your voter information card, view a sample ballot, and find your Polling Place.
Make sure you know where to vote: each city and town has different voting districts, which means you must report to a specific location to cast your vote in person. Be sure to check your Polling Place, as it may have changed since the last time you voted!
NEW: Early voting: If you feel weary waiting in line at the polls come Election Day due to COVID concerns, you can now vote early, in person. In the 20 days leading up to Election Day, you can vote in person at your city or town hall. This option is great for those who cannot make it to the Polling Place on Election Day, or if you have missed the deadline to apply for a mail ballot. Early voting is similar to normal, in-person voting.
Check the status of your mail ballot: You can track the status of your mail ballot to ensure it gets from point A to point B by accessing your voting record.
These are helpful resources for Rhode Islanders to stay up to date on their voting information. With these tools, making your voice heard is easy and efficient.
