Board of Elections

by kelseylim

Last Wednesday (the 12th), Keela and I paid a visit to the Board of Elections office in Providence to get an “official” tour of the building and see how things run there. We’ve both visited the office before and met with some of the people who work there, but it was nice doing a more thorough walk through of the place and getting to see some familiar faces. Tomorrow (Friday) we will be paying a visit to the Secretary of State’s Elections Division, the Board of Election’s counterpart in planning for and executing elections in Rhode Island. Stay tuned for more on that, and in the meantime here are some pictures from our visit!
