Not Registered? You Can Vote For Prez/VP (Only!)

Rhode Island state law allows people who have not registered to vote to cast a ballot of the top office – in E.G., go to Swift.

Yes, Virginia, you can vote for president on Election Day even if you didn't register. 

According to Rhode Island General Law 17-1-3, people who missed the voter registration deadline may vote for president/vice president only at their local Board of Canvassers on Election Day. 

In East Greenwich, you can do that at Swift Community Center on Tuesday, Nov. 6, during regular polling hours (7 a.m. to 8 p.m.). Swift is the only EG polling place set up for this. You will need to show an ID and complete a registration form. You will then be given a ballot for President/Vice President only.

This is also for people who have moved to EG from another city or town in Rhode Island over a year ago but failed to change their address.

For more information about limited voting, check out the Limited Ballot Section on the R.I. Board of Elections website for more information.
