The East Providence Republican City Committee will be hosting a multi-city GOP Presidential Candidate Signature Party and “Florida Primary” Straw Poll on Tuesday, January 31st. The event will be held at the Santa Maria Cultural Center (Holy Ghost Brotherhood Mariense), at 846 Broadway, in East Providence from 7:00 P.M. to 10:00 P.M.
Registered voters who live in East Providence, Providence, Pawtucket, or Barrington are invited to stop by our FREE event to sign the nomination papers for all of the GOP candidates for President (Mitt Romney, Rick Santorum, Ron Paul, Newt Gingrich, etc.). To get on the ballot in RI for the April 24th primary, each candidate must obtain at least 1,000 valid signatures by February 2nd. Please note that you are not required to be a Republican to sign the candidates’ nomination papers, just a currently registered voter.
Those attending may also “vote” for their favorite GOP presidential candidate in our Florida Primary Straw Poll ($1 per vote), as well as watch the results of the Florida Primary as they come in. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the candidates, local campaigns, and our city committee. Speakers include new RI Republican Party Chair Mark Zaccaria. There will be a cash bar, as well as complimentary snacks available. This event is free and open to the public.
