SOUTH KINGSTOWN – Although Election Day can be seen as a relaxing day off for some people, for others it is a day to work hard for what you believe in either by working at the polls or campaigning for a favorite candidate.
Campaign workers manned their polling places to support their candidates and to exercise their right to vote.
“It's what you believe in. We have the right to [vote]. A lot of people have fought and died for that right to vote so why wouldn't you?” Ken Plymesser said, who campaigned outside South Kingstown High School for his favorite candidates.
As of midday, 860 people of 2,200 registered voters had voted at Broad Rock Middle School. At South Kingstown High School, 648 of 2,160 voters had visited the polling place. At Matunuck Elementary School, 600 of 1,400 registered voters had cast their vote.
