Who Draws the Lines? Redistricting in Rhode Island

Saturday, May 18th -- 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM

Metcalf Auditorium, Chace Center/RISD Museum

20 North Main Street, Providence, RI 02906

Please attend this Saturday to learn about Rhode Island's redistricting process, the effects of gerrymandering, and what you can do to make a difference.

In-Person Early Voting

Common Cause Rhode Island is leading the charge for in-person early voting at the General Assembly, and you can help! Make your voice heard by emailing your legislators to tell them that you support early voting and they should too.

If we don't pass in-person early voting this year, our next election will be a disaster. More Rhode Islanders are choosing to vote early, and 2020 is predicted to have record turnout nation-wide.

SEND A LETTER TO YOUR LEGISLATORS TELLING THEM THAT RHODE ISLAND NEEDS THEM TO VOTE YES ON THIS BILL -- THIS YEAR.
