Polling places are open from 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. on Election Day. Anyone in line at 7:00 p.m. will be allowed to vote.

Rhode Island state law 17-19-24.2 requires all voters to present valid photo identification prior to voting at the polls in all elections beginning in 2014. Voters will need to present one of the following forms of photo ID:

  • RI Driver's License
  • RI Voter ID Card *
  • U.S. Passport
  • ID issued by a U.S. educational institution
  • U.S. military ID
  • ID card issued by the United States or the State of Rhode Island

The Rhode Island Secretary of State's office is issuing free voter photo ID cards to individuals who do not possess any of the valid Photo IDs listed above. See the Secretary of State's website for additional information on the program, or call (401) 222-2340.

Any voter who is unable to present valid identification at the polls, will be required to cast a provisional ballot.

Identification is not required to vote by mail ballot.
