CRANSTON, RI– While in-person RI primary voting runs today through 8 p.m. at your local polling place, the Rhode Island Board of Elections has received thousands of early voting and mail-in ballots.
The board released its updated numbers (as of Sept. 12 at 4:30 p.m.) on the number of mail and early voting ballots received, and the number of ballots that have been run through the Board’s high-speed optical scanners:
- Early voting ballots received: 14,
- Mail ballots scanned in as received: 13,083
- 4,147 ballots have been run through the Board of Elections’ high-speed optical scanners*
The board noted that ballots run through the Board of Elections’ high-speed optical scanners are processed, but not yet counted. Nothing is totaled for any contest or question until after 8 p.m. on Election Night, and the Board cannot see or access totals, they said.
All mail ballots must be received by the State Board of Elections at 2000 Plainfield Pike Cranston, RI 02921 by 8 p.m. the night of the election. If you were not able to mail the ballot back in time utilize a Drop Box at these locations.
