Woonsocket Call - - OBITUARIES/REGION -

PROV­I­DENCE (AP) — Rhode Is­land Sec­re­tary of State Nel­lie Gor­bea is re­mind­ing el­i­gi­ble vot­ers to send in their mail bal­lot ap­pli­ca­tions.

Tues­day is the dead­line for res­i­dents who want to vote by mail in the Nov. 6 gen­eral elec­tion. Vot­ers must re­turn their mail bal­lot ap­pli­ca­tion to their lo­cal board of can­vassers.

The ap­pli­ca­tion is avail­able on­line or vot­ers can call their board of can­vassers.

Ad­di­tional fund­ing was al­lo­cated in this year’s bud­get so vot­ers won’t have to pay for postage for mail bal­lots.

Com­pleted mail bal­lots must be re­ceived by the state Board of Elec­tions by 8 p.m. on Elec­tion Day.

If an el­i­gi­ble voter misses the mail bal­lot ap­pli­ca­tion dead­line, they can vote by emer­gency mail bal­lot at their board of can­vassers un­til 4 p.m. on Nov. 5.
