The pandemic has changed the way we live our lives — including how we vote. During the 2020 election, emergency measures temporarily expanded voting access giving more Rhode Islanders the opportunity to vote by mail or early in-person than ever before in state history, resulting in record voter turnout.
It’s time to codify the policies that expanded access to the ballot for voters in 2020. The RI General Assembly can modernize and improve voting access in Rhode Island by passing the Let RI Vote Act.
The second goal is to create a pathway toward Same Day Registration in Rhode Island. Passing this resolution will put a question to Rhode Island voters to amend the state constitution allowing the General Assembly to change the voter registration deadline.
