On Tuesday when people are heading out to the polls, voters will need to show their ID's and voting hours end earlier than usual this year.

ABC 6 Chief Political Reporter Mark Curtis caught up with Rhode Island Secretary of State Ralph Mollis about what to expect.

"There's a couple of things, first this year polls will close at 8 O' clock. So, I want to get that message out that this is the first year that polls don't close at 9. But the most important thing is that because of redistricting, a lot of cities and towns have changed their polling places. So, you may be voting in a different place than you have before. So, we're encouraging hurricane people to go to our website SOS.RI.GOV, you can put in your name and find out exactly where you vote. In addition you can get a list of the ID's they'll be asking for this year because this is the first year for voter ID," explained Mollis.
