PRESS RELEASE POSTED APRIL 22, 2016
Where To Vote on Tuesday? Secretary Gorbea urges voters to confirm polling locations and times at sos.ri.gov/vic
PROVIDENCE, RI – Thousands of Rhode Islanders will vote on Tuesday, April 26, to elect delegates to the Democratic and Republican National Conventions and to signal their choice for either party’s Presidential candidate.
Statewide, 144 polling places will open for next Tuesday’s election. This is approximately one-third of the polling places available during regularly scheduled elections. Additionally, polling hours and locations may differ for the Presidential Preference Primary. That’s why Secretary Gorbea is urging voters to confirm their polling location and times using the Secretary of State’s Voter Information Center at sos.ri.gov/vic.
Secretary Gorbea recently launched a redesigned mobile version of the Voter Information Center that provides unprecedented personalized information, including interactive maps and sample ballots. The Mobile Voter Information Center loads instantly and does not require the user to download a separate app.
Voters who unexpectedly find they will be unable to vote at their polling place on Election Day are encouraged to go to their local city or town hall through April 25 and vote using an emergency mail ballot.
Additionally, the RI Department of State’s Election Division has staff that is available to answer any related question directly via telephone at (401) 222-2340 or via email at email@example.com.
