Rhode Island is holding its fourth election in nine months on March 2, with seven bond questions to fund everything from an arts center at URI to state beaches and parks to public housing on the ballot.
If you want to vote in the election and you are not registered to vote, you need to register by Sunday, Jan. 31. You can do that online at vote.ri.gov any time before 11 p.m. Sunday, or at Town Hall Friday or at the EG Police Dept. between 1 and 4 p.m. Sunday.

Early voting will also be available, starting Feb. 10, at the Town Clerk’s office at Town Hall. On Election Day, there will be one polling place – Swift Community Center.
