With the upcoming general election just a day away, Rhode Island residents are readying to decide the fate of local, state and national races. Though many Rhode Islanders have already cast their ballots by mail or through the new emergency in-person process, the Nov. 3 Election Day will still include regular in-person voting at polling places around the state.
North Kingstown voters will be asked to choose up to five candidates for town council. Candidates for North Kingstown Town Council include incumbents Greg Mancini (D), Mary Brimer (R), Kerry McKay (R) and Kevin Maloney (I), along with challengers Randy Wietman (R), Kimberly Ann Page (D), Brad Artery (D), John Kliever (D) and Katherine Anderson (D).
Five candidates also declared their candidacies for the North Kingstown School Committee, with voters being asked to choose up to three. Candidates include incumbents Robert Jones (R), Jacob Mather (D) and Jennifer Hoskins (D), as well as newcomers Hannah Zangari (R) and Jennifer Lima (D).
After Rhode Island State Senator James Sheehan (D-Dist. 36, North Kingstown, Narragansett) announced earlier this year that he would not be seeking reelection, a number of candidates declared their candidacies. Voters will be asked to choose between three different candidates for the Senate District 36 seat: Doreen Costa (R), Alana DiMario (D) and Matthew Mannix (I).
