For the first time, Rhode Island residents will be able to register to vote online beginning this week.
The state's new online voter registration website is scheduled to go live on Monday.
Secretary of State Nellie Gorbea says Rhode Island now joins 31 other states in letting eligible residents register to vote or update their voter information online. The state's General Assembly passed legislation this year allowing online voter registration.
The website can be found at vote.ri.gov and in Spanish at vota.ri.gov.
