Do I need to provide IDwhen Iapply for my absentee ballot in Rhode Island

You do not need to provide ID if you've already voted in Rhode Island at least once. If you are a first-time Rhode Island voter, and you did not put your driver's license number or state ID card number on your voter registration form, then you must provide a copy of one of the following with your absentee ballot application: a current and valid photo identification OR or a current utility bill, Current bank statement, Current government check, Current paycheck, or another current government document that shows your name and Rhode Island address.first-time
