Despite two close races and a controversial vote on gambling in Newport, The Rhode Island Secretary of State is predicting only moderate voter turnout for today’s mid-term elections. But the hope is for better numbers than 2010.
That’s because this year has an extremely tight and potentially landmark governor’s race on the line. Latest polling numbers show Democrat Gina Raimondo and Republican Allan Fung neck in neck. Secretary of State Ralph Mollis says his office is hoping for about fifty percent of eligible voters to exercise their right.
