Ethics, casino measures to be decided by RI voters

Rhode Island voters will help choose a new president, decide whether to expand the authority of the state's ethics commission and determine whether to allow a new casino as they cast ballots at polls around the state.

Polls close at 8 p.m. Tuesday.

At the top of the ballot, voters will decide between Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton for president.

It's the first presidential election in Rhode Island where voters will have to show photo ID. Those without one will be allowed to cast a provisional ballot.

Voters will also be asked whether to amend the state constitution to give the ethics commission authority to investigate and sanction state lawmakers.

Question 1 asks voters to allow a new casino to be built in Tiverton, on the Massachusetts border.
