You can’t vote if you’re not registered. If you’re a resident of the Ocean State, make sure that you are registered. Register Republican, Democrat, or unaffiliated, it doesn’t matter for the purposes of voting in either the primary or general election.
Your vote on this date helps determine who gets each party’s nomination. In 2014, there were only 26,553 votes cast in the Republican primary. That means that it won’t take much to tip the nomination from one candidate to another. No matter which party (or none at all) you are affiliated with, you choose which primary you wish to vote in when you walk through the door.
In Rhode Island, the Lieutenant Governor is on the ballot separately from the Governor. No matter who you prefer as Governor, remember that you can vote for the Lieutenant Governor who you feel will do the best job in making Government work for the people of Rhode Island.
