UPDATE: Officials Predict Solid Voter Turnout

A solid stream of East Providence voters made their way to  to cast their vote in Tuesday's Rhode Island Primary.

As of 4 p.m., the polls at Kent Heights Elementary School registered almost 550 registered voters cast ballots in the primary. According to Assistant Mayor Thomas Rose Jr., who was campaigning alongside state representative hopeful Roberto DaSilva, 20 to 25 percent voter turnout is expected.

Some voters walking out of the booths said they voted for DaSilva due to influence from teachers unions.

As of late afternoon, Rhode Island State Police officers were not on the scene to monitor voting irregularities. According to residents outside the school, a handful of voters were given the wrong ballots. The errors were quickly rectified. 

Log on to East Providence Patch tonight for election results.
