PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WLNE) — Rhode Island voters will be able to track the votes being cast during the 1st Congressional District special election next month.

“Transparency and accuracy are critical components of our elections systems, and the Voter Turnout Tracker tool makes data about this special primary election easily accessible to the public,” said Secretary of State Gregg Amore.

Amore said the Voter Turnout Tracker allows users to easily see how many votes were cast in every Rhode Island municipality — “down to the precinct level.”

Users, he said, can see how many votes were cast by mail ballot or early in-person.

The tracker will update twice a day — once mid-day and then again in the evening.

The special election is on Sept. 5. Polls will close at 8 p.m.

“I encourage all Rhode Islanders with a special election in their community to make their voice heard on or before September 5,” said Amore.
