Mail Ballots

Emergency Mail Ballot

If for any reason you believe you will not be able to make it to the polls on election day, you can vote early using an emergency mail ballot within 20 days before the election.

To apply for an emergency mail ballot you must obtain an application from your local board of canvassers and return it to them by 4:00 P.M. the day before the election. You will be able to vote your ballot at the board of canvassers, take it with you, or authorize someone to pick it up for you.

All mail ballots must be received by the State Board of Elections at 50 Branch Avenue Providence, R.I. 02904 by 8:00 P.M. the night of the election.

Call your local Board of Canvassers for more information.
