Voter Engagement Opportunities

Voter Engagement Opportunities

Voting and housing form a running bond that allows us to put roofs over the people of Rhode Island. Affordable homes are built with votes, and homes enable us to be engaged voters. 

While we are not in election season right now, there’s an exciting movement to expand access to voting in RI: Let RI Vote! Every eligible Rhode Islander deserves equal access to the ballot, regardless of how they choose to vote. That is why Let RI Vote is supporting a comprehensive set of changes that will give Rhode Islanders the opportunity to vote by mail, early, or on Election Day, and to enact same day registration.

Voting with Housing Insecurity

Many thanks to everyone that participated in “get out the vote” efforts during the 2020 election and the 2021 bond campaign, 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.
