It'll Take You Some Time to Vote
The Nov. 6 election ballot includes a host of Barrington candidates for town council and school committee, candidates for Congress, and seven ballot questions along with the Presidential candidates.
Barrington voters have plenty of local candidates to choose from in the Presidential election on Tuesday, Nov. 6. Expect to spend some time filling out your ballot. And you'll probably wait in line quite a bit longer.
Voters also must select between incumbent District 1 Congressman David Cicilline, a Democrat, and his Republican challenger, Brendan Doherty. An independent, David Vogel, also is on the ballot.
Voters must also pick a U.S. Senator from Rhode Island: either the incumbent, Democrat Sheldon Whitehouse or his Republican challenger, Barry Hinckley.
There are also seven state ballot questions, including two that would approve casino gambling at Twin River and Newport Grand and one that approve $25 million in bonds for affordable housing -- a somewhat contentious issue in Barrington.
Here is the list of local candidates in the order they are listed on the ballot if you need some help.
