Last Chance to Register to Vote in Primary

Secretary of State Mollis is reminding Rhode Islanders they have until tomorrow, August 9, to register to vote in the September 9 primary.

Even though the deadline to register to vote falls on a Saturday, our office at 148 West River St. in Providence will be open from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. tomorrow. In addition, We put together a list of the locations in every city and town that will be open on Saturday so people can take advantage of the extra day to register to vote. The Providence Board of Canvassers will be on the job at City Hall tomorrow from 1 to 4 p.m.

Completed voter registration forms that have not been turned into local board of canvassers by tomorrow must be postmarked by August 9 in order to make the deadline.

At the top of September’s ballot, U.S. Sen. Jack Reed will face Democratic challenger Christopher Young. There are local primaries for state representative, state senate, city council and school committee in many communities this year.

In order to register to vote, you must be at least 18 years of age, a U.S. citizen, a resident of Rhode Island and have a valid social security number or Rhode Island driver’s license. Registering to vote is free. For more information, contact me at 222-4293 or
