The R.I. Board of Elections plans to open only 144 of Rhode Island’s 419 polling places for the April 26 primary, so you may not be voting at your usual polling place. Check out the sample ballot here so you know what’s what ahead of time. Expect long lines.

WPRI’s Ted Nesi spoke with John Marion of Common Cause Rhode Island who worries about the chaos over at the R.I. Board of Elections.

In addition, ongoing turmoil at the Board of Elections means the agency will be without a permanent leader during the primary: its executive director, Robert Kando, is currently serving his second unpaid suspension of the year due to job performance issues. He is not scheduled to return to work until May 2.

Marion said that despite his cautious optimism about next week’s vote, “it’s still disconcerting to know that the executive director – who is charged with making sure the election day runs smoothly – is on an unpaid suspension on primary day.”

We’ve written about this idiot before —Kando should have been fired long ago. Somebody please call Jimmy Carter!
