Voting Rights for Persons with Disabilities

Voters with access questions (or their representatives) may contact the Cranston Board of Canvassers via phone at 401-780-3121, via email at canvassing@cranstonri.gov, or in-person at the Canvassing Authority office at Cranston City Hall, Room 100. The accessible entrance is on the side of the building, nearest to Cranston East.

All polling locations in Cranston are inspected for ADA accessibility compliance and every effort is made to ensure voters with disabilities can exercise their right to vote independently. If you experience obstacles to voting, please do not hesitate to contact the Canvassing Authority. There may be more preferable voting options, including requesting an accessible ballot, a Braille or tactile ballot, or voting with an assisted device such as the ExpressVote ballot marking device during the early voting period or at a polling place on Election Day.

Disability Rights RI (DRRI) has a VOTING HOTLINE at (401) 831-3150 to provide information about mail ballot voting; early voting; guardianship and voting; voting rights such as the right to assistance; voter ID requirements; and voter registration status.  Please contact DRRI with questions about disability-related voting rights or questions about how to vote with assistance or ask for accommodations in voting.  You may sign up for DRRI email updates by visiting the “Contact Us” section of the DRRI website at https://drri.org/contact-us/.

Disability Rights RI and the state Governor's Commission on Disabilities inspect polling places, in cooperation with the state Board of Elections, for compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act. Contact information for the Commission may be found online at https://gcd.ri.gov/
