FREE Voter ID cards available at Central Falls Voter ID event

PROVIDENCE, RI -- On Tuesday, October 29, 2013 a Voter ID event will be held at Central Falls City Hall at 580 Broad Street from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

Poll workers will ask you to show a current and valid ID when you vote at your polling place. Voter ID strengthens the public's faith in the integrity of our elections by enabling poll workers to match a voter's face to the name they give at the polls.

We will provide a free Voter ID to voters who don't already have a current and valid Photo ID

Acceptable IDs:

RI driver's license U.S. passport U.S. military identification card

No eligible voter will be turned away at the polls. Voters who do not bring an acceptable ID to their polling place can vote using a standard Provisional Ballot. The ballot will be counted if the signature they give at their polling place matches the signature on their voter registration Mail ballots do not require ID

Registered voters who cannot make it to this event can also obtain a valid Voter ID at our office in Providence during normal business hours. We will visit any requesting community or event, which contacts our office at (401) 222-2340, TTY 711 or
