The Elections Division at the Rhode Island Department of State, in cooperation with the State Board of Elections, is offering five How to Run for Office seminars to current and potential candidates to learn the ins and outs of getting their names on the ballot this election season.

Elections staffers from both agencies will provide would-be candidates information on how to properly complete a Declaration of Candidacy form, how to properly complete nomination papers, how to maintain compliance with campaign finance laws, and more.

The seminars complement a new Rhode Island elections website recently released by Secretary of State Nellie M. Gorbea. Candidates and voters are encouraged to go to now a one-stop shop for elections information in the state.

Eligible Rhode Islanders can register to vote, update their voter information, and preview their sample ballots at the new site, as well as find in-depth information about how elections work in Rhode Island.

"Everyday citizens must have a strong voice in the democratic process,” Secretary Gorbea said. “Whether it is through voting, or running for office, I am committed to encouraging Rhode Islanders to play an active role in our state. The latest updates to will help provide candidates and voters with the information they need to be engaged in this year’s elections in a mobile-friendly page."

New content added to the site includes civics information for voters, visualizations of voter and past turnout data, and information about how the Elections Division at the Rhode Island Department of State, the Board of Elections, and local boards all work together to run elections across the state.
