Voter Registration Information

The Higher Education Act, as amended by the Higher Education Opportunity Act of 2008, requires Providence College to make a good faith effort to make voter registration forms widely available to you.

It is important that you exercise your right to vote.

For Rhode Island Residents:

Rhode Island residents can go to vote.ri.gov as their one stop shop for elections information. Eligible voters can:

  • Register to vote online
  • Update voter information
  • Find their local polling place, preview a sample ballot, and view their elected officials

There are three ways to vote in Rhode Island.

  1. Vote with a mail ballot
  2. Vote early with an emergency mail ballot
  3. Vote at the polls on election day

For Out of State Residents

Out of state residents can also go to https://vote.sos.ri.gov/ovr/voters/vote_by_mail to learn about how to request mail ballots in their home states.

If you are an out-of-state resident who wants to register to vote in Rhode Island, it is recommended to speak with the Providence College Financial Aid office, Harkins Hall, Room 403, to make sure doing so does not impact your financial aid.
