Voter Engagement Opportunities

Voter Engagement Opportunities

Welcome to the homepage of Voter Engagement Opportunities for Homes RI! Homes RI is working with Our Homes, Our Votes: 2020, a non-partisan campaign to register, educate, and mobilize more low income renters and affordable housing advocates to be involved in voting and the National Low Income Housing Coalition, which is dedicated solely to achieving socially just public policy that assures people with the lowest incomes in the United States have affordable and decent homes.

Homes RI is a coalition of organizations working together to increase and preserve the supply of safe, healthy and affordable homes throughout Rhode Island. We believe Rhode Island can and should be a state where all residents are able to live in safe, healthy and sustainable homes in thriving communities. To accomplish this, it is critical that we engage renters, homeowners, and other low income people in the voting process to ensure low-income housing interests are represented.

Voting with Housing Insecurity

What an exciting primary! Many thanks to everyone that participated in “get out the vote” efforts, encouraging and empowering housing voters.
We want to thank Secretary of State Nellie Gorbea for working with Homes RI to produce a video and FAQ for voters experiencing housing insecurity. Check out the video and FAQs below!

Civic Engagement and Voter Resources

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic and implementing social distancing practices, you have the option to vote by mail if you do want to vote in person. A federal judge waived the notary and witnesses requirement for voting by mail. The State Primary is Tuesday September 8, 2020. The General Election is Tuesday November 3, 2020. To vote by mail in the State Primary, the application is due Tuesday August 18, 2020 by 4:00 PM. If you want to vote by mail in the General Election, the application is due Tuesday October 13, 2020 by 4:00 PM.

Together, we can work to ensure all Rhode Islanders live in safe, healthy, affordable homes.
