SNA to host informal forum for City Council incumbent, write-in challenger

Kevin Jackson, the incumbent member of the Providence City Council, and Marcus Mitchell, the write-in challenger, will appear together at an informal forum to answer constituents’ questions at a forum sponsored by the Summit Neighborhood Association at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 30, in the main dining hall of Summit Commons, 99 Hillside Ave. Light refreshments will be available.

Here are write-in instructions from the Rhode Island Board of Elections.

What if the candidate I want to vote for does not appear on the ballot?

A vote for someone not shown on the printed ballot is called a “write-in.” The write-in option cannot be used during primary elections. You must do two things to cast a “write-in” vote.

  1. Print the name of the person on the blank line labeled “write-in,” and
  2. Complete the arrow pointing to the person’s name next to the write-in line.
