Secretary of State Mollis Makes Free Voter IDs Available at R.I. Convention Center This Saturday

12/13/2012

PROVIDENCE, R.I. – The Secretary of State's office will provide free photo IDs to voters who need one in order to comply with the state's new Voter ID law Sat., Dec. 15, from noon to 4 p.m. as part of the "Feed 1,000" event at the R.I. Convention Center.

Organized by the Pawtucket-based PMG Inc., "Feed 1,000" will offer food, clothing and health care services to needy Rhode Islanders. The stop will be the last of more than 100 community outreach events for the Secretary of State's office this year.

"I think it is fair to say that Voter ID rolled out as well as anyone could have imagined. Nearly 560,000 ballots were cast, fewer than 190 provisional ballots were received and no one has reported having been turned away at the polls because they did not bring ID," said Mollis.
