Secretary Gorbea reminds eligible voters October 7 registration deadline is almost here

PROVIDENCE, RI – Secretary of State Nellie M. Gorbea is reminding eligible Rhode Islanders that they have until Sunday, October 7 to register to vote in the November 6 general election. Voters who have moved or changed their names since they last voted are also reminded to update their information to avoid difficulties on Election Day.

Eligible Rhode Islanders can go to vote.ri.gov to register to vote online or update their voter information if they have recently moved or changed their names. Eligible Rhode Islanders without online access can still register to vote or update their voter information by completing the paper voter registration form available at their city or town hall.

"I encourage eligible voters to visit vote.ri.gov today to make sure they are ready to vote in November," Secretary Gorbea said. "Federal and statewide races receive much of the attention this cycle, but it is also important to remember the local races and referendum questions that will impact your day-to-day life."

Although the October 7 deadline falls on a Sunday, every city and town will have designated drop-off locations, such as local police or fire stations, for paper voter registration forms. The Rhode Island Department of State's Election Division will also be open from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. to accept voter registrations. Those looking to register or update their information can download a voter registration form at vote.ri.gov.

For more information on how to register or any other information related to elections and voting in Rhode Island, please visit the Rhode Island Department of State's Elections Division online at www.vote.ri.gov or call (401) 222-2340.
