Mail Ballot Applications Being Sent Out For November Election


(Providence, RI)--Secretary of State Nellie Gorbea [[ gore-BAY-uh ]] says all active Rhode Island voters will receive mail ballot applications for the November general election.Because of coronavirus concerns about in-person voting, Gorbea's office sent out such applications for the June presidential primary.The Rhode Island House passed legislation during a special summer session to allow applications to be sent out in September and November, but the bill was not passed by the state Senate, and the applications didn't go out for last week's election.Gorbea says she does not believe she needs legislative approval or an executive order from the governor to take this action.
