On August 18th the Jamestown Democrats celebrated the 100th Anniversary of the Woman’s Right To Vote at the Rembijas Pavilion at Fort Getty Park.

The event featured one day exhibit of the history of Women’s Suffrage in Rhode Island and the United States.

The Jamestown Democratic Town Committee firmly believes all residents who are eligible to vote should do so. 

Register to Vote

Automatic Voter Registration (AVR) was passed in 2017. This means that, if eligible, you will automatically be registered to vote when you interact with the DMV.  If you do not interact with the DMV, you will need to register yourself.   

For the general election this November, you have until October 4 to register to vote.  Go to the Rhode Island Secretary of State website to see your options or to check your registration status and accuracy.

Voting by Mail:  You have until October 13 to submit a mail ballot application to your local board of canvassers at Town Hall, 93 Narragansett Avenue. You can download the application form from the Secretary of State’s website: https://elections.ri.gov/voting/applymail.php.  Fill out the application and mail it or drop it off in the drop box behind Town Hall. A mail ballot will be mailed to your address of record.

Vote in the comfort of your home.  Mail your completed ballot, drop it in the drop box behind Town Hall, or deposit your mail ballot in the drop box in the Town Hall Council Chamber between 8:30 am to 4:00 pm Monday through Friday 

The last day to safely mail your mail ballot to the Board of Elections is Thursday, October 29.  

If you missed the August 18 deadline for a mail ballot, you can cast your ballot into an actual voting machine at Town Hall, for 20 days prior to an election.

Dates:  August 19 until September 8, 2020, Monday through Friday, except Labor Day (September 7).  
 
Hours:  8:30 am to 4:00 pm
 
Procedure:  WEAR A MASK.  Enter the unlocked back door of the Town Hall Council Chambers.   A town official  will be there to provide a ballot and guide you through the process.
The State of Rhode Island has a voter id law. When you vote at the polls, you will be asked to show picture identification. Accepted photo identification are:
    • RI driver’s license
    • U.S. passport
    • ID card issued by an educational institution in the United States
    • U.S. military identification card
    • ID card issued by the U.S. government or State of Rhode Island such as a RIPTA bus pass
    • Government issued medical card
    • RI Voter ID.

You can still vote if you arrive at the polls without an accepted photo id. You’ll be using a provisional ballot, just ask the poll worker for one.   

The same general procedure will be followed on September 8, but the polls will be open from 7 am to 8 pm.  The Town Hall will be the ONLY polling location in Jamestown for the primary and probably for the election.
