Where to Go
Due to last year's remapping of state and local districts in Rhode Island following the 2010 Census, many districts have changed around the state. Click here for a map of Tiverton to see if your Senate, Representative and local precinct numbers (and your local polling location) have changed.
You can also visit the Secretary of State's website, where you can enter in your name and address and find out your House and Senate districts.
What to Bring
The days of waltzing in to your polling location without an ID are over. The passage of the voter ID law now requires you to bring an acceptable form of identification in order to vote, including:
- RI driver's license
- US passport
- ID card issued by US educational institution
- US military identification card
- State of Rhode Island or US government issued ID card
- government issued medical card
- Rhode Island Voter Identification Card
