No hearings have been scheduled for this week. The staff at the State House is continuing to work virtually due to safety concerns.
The September primary is approaching quickly – September 8th. If you have not requested a mail ballot, you still have two options to vote. For many state representatives and state senators, the primary is THE election because they have no opponent in November. That makes this primary extremely important.
If you wish to vote in person on September 8th, you can find your voting location at https://vote.sos.ri.gov/Home/PollingPlaces?ActiveFlag=2
Registered voters also have the option to vote early in-person between August 19th and September 8th. In the 20 days leading up to Election Day, you can vote in person at your city or town hall during their regular business hours. This is a great option if you are unable to vote at your usual polling place on Election Day, or if you have run out of time to request a mail ballot. Simply go to your local board of canvassers in your city/town https://vote.sos.ri.gov/Elections/LocalBoards, present a valid photo ID, fill out the ballot that is given to you and then place it into the voting machine – Done!
