Do I need to provide IDwhen I apply 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
