What about Voter ID?
This year, all Rhode Island voters will be required to show a valid ID prior to voting, which include driver's licenses, passports, school identification cards, and RIPTA bus passes, among others, according to the Secretary of State's Voter ID web page. A photo ID will be required in 2014.
Voters who do not have an ID tomorrow can fill out a provisional ballot, which will be checked against their signature on their voting application (on file with the town's board of canvassers). If the signatures match, the provisional ballot will be considered vaild.
If you'd like to get a Rhode Island Voter ID card, check out this video on how.
