Hi Rhode Island, if you want to vote in  the 2022 midterm elections there are three   steps you need to take.

Register, make  your plan, and of course, vote.   Lets start with getting registered. You’ll need  to print out a voter registration form and mail   it in, or fill out a form at your county  election board office by October 9th   Once you’re registered, it’s time to make  your plan for how you’re going to vote.   If you’re going to be out of town on election day  or just want to vote early from the comfort of   your own couch, you can request that your ballot  be mailed to you.

You have until October 18th   to request a mail ballot, but the sooner you ask  for one, the sooner you can get it, fill it out,   and mail it back to your Board of Canvassers or  drop it off in a drop box by November 8th.   In Rhode Island, mail ballots have to be  signed by two witnesses or stamped by a notary,   so we’ll also leave a link to Rhode Island’s  list of ballot notaries you can use.   You can vote early in person from October 19th  to November 7th at an early voting location in   your county. You can find locations and their  hours at   Or you can vote on election day on November 8th.  You can look up where and when you’ll vote at that   same link. Polls are open from 7am to 8pm.

You’ll also need to bring a photo ID with you,   like a driver’s license, state ID, passport,  military, tribal, or student ID. If you don’t   have any of those, you can get a free voter ID  at your local Board of Canvassers office.   Once you have your plan for how you’re  going to vote, where you need to go,   what time you’re going to vote, and what ID you’re  going to bring, you just need to follow the plan,   and go vote on or before November 8th. If you want to know everything that you can   vote for ahead of time, you can find a sample  ballot at so you   have time to research candidates and make your  decisions.

You don’t have to vote for everything   for your ballot to count, but this is your best  chance to choose who gets to make decisions   about your life: all the way from congress  to your city council or school board.   We’ve put all the links for everything  you need to register, vote absentee,   find your polling place, and locate your sample  ballot at   Thank you for voting!
