How to vote by mail for the June 2 primary

Secretary of State Nellie M. Gorbea is reminding Rhode Islanders that they have until Tuesday, May 19, to submit mail ballot applications for the June 2 Presidential Primary. For the safety of voters and poll workers, Rhode Island’s Presidential Primary will be a mostly mail ballot election.

Please note, mail ballot applications must be received by the Board of Elections or your local board of canvassers by Tuesday, May 19, not postmarked. Applications postmarked on Tuesday, May 19 will likely not be received in time. Applications can also be dropped off in person at your local board of canvassers.

Any registered voter in need of a mail ballot application can visit vote.ri.gov or contact the Department of State’s Elections Division at 401-222-2340 or elections@sos.ri.gov.

Voters who do not return mail ballot applications by the Tuesday, May 19 deadline or who prefer to vote in person can vote at the Block Island School on June 2.
