In November 2012 Common Cause Rhode Island had over 60 volunteers at polling places around the state. They found problems ranging from long-lines, to poor signs. The result of their efforts was a 22-page report, 'We have to fix that.' The recommendations from that report include implementing a system of in-person early voting in Rhode Island as well as the availability of on-line voter registration.
