S.K. Democratic and Unaffiliated Voters – Only 1 day left to apply for Mail-In Ballots for Sep 8th Democratic Primary

Applications must be received by the S.K. Board of Canvassers at the Town Hall by 4:oo PM tomorrow!

The deadline to apply for a mail ballot for the upcoming September primary is fast approaching.

PROVIDENCE, RI — Rhode Islanders have until tomorrow to request a mail ballot for the upcoming Sept. 8 primary, Secretary of State Nellie Gorbea reminded voters.

“Voting from home is a safe and secure option, especially during this pandemic,” Gorbea said. “Remember that your mail ballot application must be received by your local board of canvassers by 4 p.m. on Tuesday, August 18. If you haven’t put your application in the mail by this weekend, I recommend dropping it off in person to make sure it’s received on time.”

Voters are required to re-apply for mail ballots for each election, meaning that those who voted by mail in June will need to submit a new application for this election. There are now but two ways to get an application: download the form from the Secretary of State’s website, visit the local Board of Canvassers after calling ahead.

Local Boards of Canvassers must receive mail ballots by 8 p.m. on election night. Postage-paid envelopes are included with all mail ballots, and, new this year, voters can track the status of their ballot on Gorbea’s website.

“Voting from home is one of three safe and secure options Rhode Islanders have for casting a ballot this year,” Gorbea’s office said in a statement. “Voters also have the choice of voting early in-person or voting at the polls on primary day. Learn more about each of these voting options at”
