Provisional Voting is a process to insure that all registered voters are allowed to participate in the election process. These qualified voters will be allowed to cast the same ballot as all others however, the disposition (full ballot, federal offices only, or disqualified) of that ballot will be determined by the voter's local board of canvassers. The voter may then learn the disposition of the ballot by clicking on the link below or by calling the Board of Elections at 401-222-2345.
The voter has until the close of business the day after the election to provide information to the Board of Canvassers to help qualify the ballot.
A voter can learn if the provisional ballot was counted by searching the status on this website 48 hours after the election. The voter will need to have the Ballot ID number (printed on Provisional Ballot Receipt) and his/her Last Name in order to access the information.
