Voter Registration Ends Oct. 7: What You Need to Do Now
With the voter registration deadline drawing close, here are some instructions on how to make sure you don't miss out on getting your ballot cast in Coventry.
If you haven’t yet registered to vote, head on over to the Coventry Town Hall and get it off your to-do list.
Six million people didn’t vote in the 2008 elections because they either did not know how to register or because they missed the voter registration deadline.
The voter registration deadline for Rhode Island is Oct. 7. Mail ballots may be requested up to Oct. 16.
Here’s information on how you can register in time for the Nov. 6 elections:
- Fill out a voter registration form in person at the local Board of Canvassers office.
- Download a Rhode Island voter registration form from the Rhode Island Secretary of State's Registration page.
- Complete a mail ballot — click here to see if you're eligible to vote by mail.
And don't forget — this year, all Rhode Island voters are required to show valid photo ID at the polls. Be sure to review our video on how to get a Rhode Island Voter ID card in case you need one.
