The Office of the Secretary of State maintains a website where you can find your polling place, registration information, and your sample ballot. It’s time to pick up that squeeky, dry black pen, make some tough choices, and shove it back into place.

From the Office:

To avoid delays on Nov. 2, voters can go to https://sos.ri.gov/vic/ to find their polling place, confirm the accuracy of their voter registration, find out when their polling place opens and see a sample of their ballot ahead of time.

The polls will open between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. depending on the community. More than 700,000 Rhode Islanders are eligible to vote.

Because the polls are usually busiest from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and 5 p.m. and 7 p.m., we advise voters to go during off hours.

Voters whose eligibility is challenged at their polling place can vote using a provisional ballot, which will be counted if elections officials determine that their voter registration is valid.

Any eligible voter in line when the polls close at 9 p.m. will be allowed to cast a ballot. Voters are allowed to bring a marked sample ballot or other material that will help them in the voting booth.

I regret that I didn’t get to learn more about all of those independent candidates. Somehow that seems unfair.
