CRANSTON — The Rhode Island Board of Elections is encouraging voters who have received mail ballots but have not yet placed their completed ballot in the mail, to utilize any of the 41 secure drop box locations at city and town halls across the state.

Drop box locations can be utilized until 8 p.m. on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 3.

The drop box does not need to be in the city or town where the voter resides and is registered. Voters may place the completed oath envelope with the enclosed voted ballot in the drop box of his or her choosing. 

“With just a few days until Election Day, we want Rhode Island voters who have received a mail ballot to know they can utilize any of the 41 secure drop box locations we have set up at city and town halls around the state,” said Robert Rapoza, Executive Director. “Using these drop boxes, voters can be assured that their ballot will be received and counted by the Board of Elections. Drop boxes will also be available at every polling location on Election Day.”

  • Barrington, Town Hall, 283 County Rd
