UPDATE ON THE 2020 PRESIDENTIAL PRIMARY

The date of Presidential Preference Primary has been changed from April 28, 2020 to June 2, 2020. A mail ballot application will be mailed to every registered voter in RI that has NOT already applied for one. This decision was made by the RIBOE to help keep Rhode Islanders safe during the Covid19 crisis. Each city and town may have one in- person polling location available on that day and will be advertised once all determinations have been made final. Many changes will, or have been, made to the election calendar due to the new date of the primary. Here are some of the upcoming dates to keep in mind:

May 3, 2020 is the last day to register to vote in the June 2, 2020 Primary
May 4, 2020 is the last day to change your party affiliation for the June 2, 2020 Primary
