For the second midterm election in a row, no voters showed up at this Rhode Island polling place


PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Rhode Island elections officials say one polling place in Providence did not see a single voter during the midterm elections this week.

Miguel Nunez, deputy director at the state elections board, told The Providence Journal that Precinct 2807 has just 11 registered voters. None of them showed Tuesday.

The precinct is near the Statehouse, state offices and a national memorial and contains few residences.

Those registered voters have shown up for elections before. Four people voted at the site in the 2016 presidential election, three for Hillary Clinton and one for Donald Trump. No one voted in the precinct in the 2014 midterm elections.

Voters nationwide are poised to break turnout records in the midterm elections

The precinct votes at the Cathedral of St. John, the former mother church of the Episcopal Diocese of Rhode Island that stopped holding services in 2012.
