PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) - The deadline for Rhode Island voters who want to vote by mail in the November 8 election is approaching.

Registered voters have until 4 p.m. Tuesday to apply for a mail ballot.

Voters can download the application online or contact a local board of canvassers to request one. Completed applications must be returned to the voter’s local board of canvassers by 4 p.m. Tuesday.

Once voters have a mail ballot, they can mark their choices and mail it in. They can also deliver it by hand on election day by 8 p.m. to the state Board of Elections.

More than 20,000 people have already applied for mail ballots.

More information about voting can be found at sos.ri.gov/elections or by calling the Secretary of State’s office at 401-222-2340.
