Rhode Island: Voting at the Polls on Election Day

Poll hours: 7:00 AM-8:00 PM

    Poll workers will ask you to show a current and valid photo ID when you vote at your polling place. Voter ID strengthens the public’s faith in the integrity of our elections by enabling poll workers to match a voter’s face to the name they give at the polls.

    No eligible voter will be turned away at the polls. Voters who do not bring an acceptable ID to their polling place can vote using a standard Provisional Ballot. The ballot will be counted if the signature they give at their polling place matches the signature on their voter registration

    Poll workers will accept the following valid and current Photo IDs:

    • RI driver's license
    • U.S. passport
    • ID card issued by an educational institution in the United States
    • U.S. military identification card
    • State of Rhode Island or federal government-issued ID card
    • Government-issued medical card
    • RI Voter ID

    Where to Get a Free Voter ID

    • Registered voters who don't have an acceptable current and valid Photo ID can get a free Voter ID at our office in Providence during normal business hours.
