Trans Vote RI Website Launched
A photo ID is required to vote in Rhode Island, but trans and non-binary people showing an ID that does not reflect their name, gender or appearance could run into some obstacles at the polls. With that in mind, Thundermist Health Center, Rhode Island Council for the Humanities and GLADLaw launched a website designed to help trans and non-binary people navigate the system. It includes step-by-step information on changing the name or gender marker on identity documents, and also explains how trans and non-binary people can get a voter ID that reflects their identity if their state ID does not.
