“City council members make decisions that affect education, the local economy, and overall quality of life in their community. If you feel you can be a voice for your community, run for office by filing a declaration of candidacy on April 29 or 30th,” said Secretary Gorbea. “And for all eligible residents in Pawtucket, I strongly encourage you to put the deadlines for these special elections in your calendars so you can make sure you exercise your right to vote.”
Eligible residents will have three safe and secure options for casting their ballot in this special election: voting from home with a mail ballot, voting early in-person at city hall, or voting at the polls. A full schedule for the special election is also available on Secretary Gorbea’s website.
