Your Vote Matters!
           Congressman Langevin speaks at an early voting event

Dear Friends,

Election Day is upon us, and I cannot emphasize enough that your vote matters! Earlier this month, I joined Secretary of State Nellie Gorbea and local officials at North Kingstown Town Hall to kick off early voting in Rhode Island and to urge voters to exercise their right to vote. Due to the pandemic, voting this year is a bit different, but if you have not yet cast your ballot, there are still options open to you.

You can still vote early in-person at your local Board of Canvassers until this evening. If you have a mail ballot, you can drop it off at designated drop boxes before 8:00pm tomorrow. Or, of course, you can vote in person at your polling location tomorrow, Election Day. If you have already mailed your ballot, you can check its status by using the State’s online tracking tool. No matter what method you decide to vote, if you’re going to interact with people, make sure to follow safety guidelines like wearing a face covering and social distancing!

I also want to underscore that it is critical that you rely on trusted sources for the latest election information and always verify stories you may hear or read. Two reliable resources for Rhode Islanders are the 2-1-1 Voter Information Hotline and the official Rhode Island Secretary of State website: vote.ri.gov.

Election officials and staff have been working around the clock to adapt to challenges presented by the health crisis, and now it is up to each of us to make sure we participate in the democratic process. Remember, voting is a right that is protected by law. A Know Your Rights guide is also available for reference.

To keep up with the latest on my work in Congress, please visit my website and follow me on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and Instagram.

            Sincerely,

           Rep. Langevin's Signature

Bolstering Cybersecurity in Schools
With millions of students and families relying on online connectivity for remote learning during the coronavirus pandemic, we must ensure cybersecurity is a top priority and that the networks schools are using are safe and secure. Congresswoman Doris Matsui and I introduced the Enhancing K-12 Cybersecurity Act to promote improved coordination and access to information to bolster school cybersecurity. This legislation will protect student privacy and prevent interruptions to distance learning.

Honoring Angels in Adoption
Kimberley and AJ Maynard of Chepachet and Emilia and Robert Morsilli of Hope were recognized as 2020 Angels in Adoption last month. These families represent the best of Rhode Island, and I applaud their passion to provide children in need with safe and welcoming forever homes filled with love. I was proud to nominate these adoptive parents because they always look out for children from vulnerable newborns at Women & Infants, to the beautiful children they have welcomed to their loving families.
