Your Local Election HQ

(WPRI) — A pair of special elections will be held in Rhode Island on Tuesday.

One is in Providence, where four Democrats are running to fill the seat vacated by Sabina Matos after she was appointed lieutenant governor earlier this year.

The candidates for her seat are: Doris De Los Santos, Casandra Inez, Santos Javier, and Oscar Vargas.

The polls are open until 8 p.m. at the Steel Yard and William D’Abate Elementary. If you have a mail ballot at home you can drop it off at the polls or City Hall.

The second special primary election is in Pawtucket to fill a vacancy on the city council following the death of Ama Amponsah.

The special general elections will be held July 6.
