PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Rhode Island residents are running out of time to register to vote in the state's September primary.

The deadline to register is Sunday. Secretary of State Ralph Mollis says applicants must submit an original, signed voter registration form to their local board of canvassers. They can also mail the form, though it must be postmarked by that date.

Mollis plans to open his West River Street office in Providence between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. on Sunday to register voters.

State law requires registration at least 30 days ahead of the primary, which is Sept. 9. Applicants have to be 18 years old by the day of the primary to register.
