Voter ID event to be held in Central Falls
 
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
 
For a full listing of acceptable IDs, please visit our website at http://www.sos.ri.gov/elections/voterid/acceptableID/
 
•    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 elections@sos.ri.gov.
 
We are committed to making it easier to vote.
