In today’s front page of the Providence Journal, the publication announced that Rhode Island voter registration has increased a whopping 30 percent since the 2010 primary. This significant increase is due in no small measure to the tireless efforts of Dominicanos USA and its dedicated staff and volunteers, who have registered over 10,800 new Dominican-American voters in Rhode Island as a result of our latest mobilization efforts. These latest figures underscore the fact that there is truly strength in numbers within our community that will now have a critical say in deciding who is elected for governor, U.S congressional representatives and other important elected positions. While we are encouraged by these figures we recognize that our work is far from finished. We remain committed to mobilizing and registering as many voters ahead of the November general election and will be arduously working toward that goal. But our priority in the next two days is to remind all Rhode Island Latino and Dominican American voters that voting is one of the most meaningful acts of civic engagement in which you can participate, and Dominicanos USA urges you to cast your ballot tomorrow in order to ensure a brighter and more inclusive future for our communities in Rhode Island.
Again, if you need assistance in finding your designated voting stations or would like to register to vote in order to participate in the November elections, please do not hesitate to contact Sammy at [401-383-7955] or visit dominicanosusa.org if you need assistance in exercising your right to vote.
