Flatten the Mail Ballot Curve
Secretary of State Nellie Gorbea announced on Friday that she has sent mail ballot applications to all eligible active voters for the November 3rd general election. That’s an important step—one that Common Cause Rhode Island has been urging her to take since April—that will protect the rights and health of voters.
Now you have options for how you cast your ballot—by mail, during early voting starting on October 14th, or at your polling place on Election Day.
If you choose to vote by mail, it’s important that you return your application early. When you get your ballot, return that early too. We call that “flattening the mail ballot curve.” By sending your application and ballot in early, you help election administrators do their jobs and you make sure your ballot is counted.
It’s predicted that there will be record turnout on November 3rd. You can do your part to make sure everything runs well by making your plan to vote now.
