VOTE by mail? Request form due Aug. 18th – what to do:

If you want to vote in the September 8th primary by mail ballot you must download your request form – and get it to the local Board of Canvassers in your city/town by 4pm tomorrow – Tuesday, August 18th. See list, below.

“Voting from home is a safe and secure option, especially during this pandemic,” said RI Secretary of State Nellie Gorbea. “Remember that your mail ballot application must be received by your local board of canvassers by 4 p.m. on Tuesday, August 18. If you haven’t put your application in the mail by this weekend, I recommend dropping it off in person to make sure it’s received on time.”

Voters are required to re-apply for mail ballots for each election, meaning that those who voted by mail in June will need to submit a new application for this election. There are three ways to get an application: download the form here: https://vote.sos.ri.gov/Voter/VotebyMail?ActiveFlag=4 from the Secretary of State’s website, visit the local Board of Canvassers after calling ahead or request the board mail an application to them.

Local Boards of Canvassers must receive mail ballots by 8 p.m. on election night. Postage-paid envelopes are included with all mail ballots, and, new this year, voters can track the status of their ballot on Gorbea’s website.

“Voting from home is one of three safe and secure options Rhode Islanders have for casting a ballot this year,” Gorbea’s office said in a statement. “Voters also have the choice of voting early in-person or voting at the polls on primary day. Learn more about each of these voting options at vote.ri.gov.”

After you download your form, and complete it – no witness signatures required – you can drop it off – by Aug. 18th – at your local city/town. Some may have outside drop off boxes – call before going:
