Rhode Island voters are heading to the polls to select candidates for Congress, the General Assembly and for municipal offices around the state.

Most polling places open at 7 a.m. Tuesday, except in Jamestown, where they open at 8 a.m., and in Hopkinton, Little Compton, New Shoreham and Westerly, where they open at 9 a.m. All polls close at 8 p.m.

There are no statewide races, but the election could affect the composition of the General Assembly since many Democratic incumbents face challengers from their own party.

There are also mayoral races in North Providence and Woonsocket.

Voters will notice a few minor changes at the polls this year. New voting machines mean voters will fill in an oval rather than connect an arrow on their paper ballots.
