Let's get out and vote tomorrow/Tuesday, September 11, it is our duty, responsibility and voice to select the candidates who have the best interest of OUR BEAUTIFUL Town of Bristol at heart. It is very important who gets voted on to November 6. Any registered Democrat and Independent may vote on tomorrow's Primary. Independents - you need to remember that if you wish to remain Independent - YOU MUST ASK FOR A FORM TO DISAFFILIATE yourself. Be heard make a choice!!!!!!

Dear Voters: The information provided in this Patch Article is incomplete. In Bristol there are 9 differet ballots, one for each polling place and these are organized by General Assembly Senate and Representative District. In Warren, there are several different ballots also. If you wish to view your own ballot, please use the following link: https://sos.ri.gov/vic/ I also hope that the Patch will edit its article since the current one is confusing our voters. Thank you, Louis P. Cirillo, Clerk Bristol Board of Canvassers (401) 253-7000

Hey Bristol Democrats and unaffiliated voters, I wanted to to throw some support out there for Ray Cordeiro and Armand Bilotti.I can't vote for them (I'll be voting in Portsmouth) But if I could, I would! As someone who spent 12 years on the Portsmouth Town Council, 6 years as the President, I know that both Ray and Armand will provide you with the common sense approach needed in government today! Please consider them when you vote tomorrow! Thanks.

Thanks for the support Pappas! Vote for my dad Armand Bilotti for Town Council! Utilize your right to vote and remember that the future of our town lies in the hands of each and every one of your votes! Good luck candidates and thank you voters!

Hi Lou, thanks very much for pointing that out. The article was intended to show a sample ballot, rather than attaching all 9 ballots. I fixed the article to make that more clear. Thanks again!
