City of­fers late night hours for Board of Can­vassers

Pawtucket Times - - BLACKSTONE VALLEY -

On Thurs­day, Oct. 18, Paw­tucket City Hall will be open from 8:30 a.m. to 7 p.m. as part of its monthly “Late Night Hours.”

The Board of Can­vassers will also be open al­low­ing Paw­tucket vot­ers who may not be able to make it to the polls on Tues­day, Nov. 6 to come to City Hall and vote an emer­gency bal­lot. Emer­gency bal­lots are the same bal­lots used at the polls on Elec­tion Day and will be sent to the RI Board of Elec­tions to be counted along with all bal­lots on Nov. 6.

There are four cat­e­gories in which you may be el­i­gi­ble to vote an emer­gency bal­lot:

1. You are in­ca­pac­i­tated to such an ex­tent that it would be an un­due hard­ship to vote at the polls be­cause of ill­ness or dis­abil­ity.

2. You will be con­fined to a hos­pi­tal, con­va­les­cent home, nurs­ing home, rest home or sim­i­lar in­sti­tu­tion in the State of Rhode Is­land.

3. You are em­ployed or you are a spouse of some­one in ser­vice with mil­i­tary op­er­a­tions.

4. You may not be able to vote at you polling place on the day of the elec­tion.

Emer­gency bal­lots will also be avail­able from Oc­to­ber 17, 2018 un­til Novem­ber 5, 2018 at the Board of Can­vassers dur­ing nor­mal busi­ness hours – 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.

Paw­tucket vot­ers with ques­tions can call the Board of Can­vassers at 722-1637.
