PROVIDENCE, Rhode Island — Rhode Island's secretary of state is holding a series of events where residents can get free voter IDs ahead of the Nov. 4 election.
Events are scheduled on Wednesday in Central Falls and Thursday in Warwick. They'll also be held in Woonsocket, Pawtucket, Johnston, East Providence and Middletown in the coming weeks.
This is the first year where voters will be asked to show a current, valid photo ID at their polling place. Driver's licenses, U.S. passports, ID cards issued by the U.S. government or a state agency like RIPTA will be accepted.
Mollis says no eligible voter will be turned away. Those who don't bring an ID may cast a provisional ballot which will be counted if the signature matches the one on their voter registration.
