Rhode Island Voters Approve Change to State Name
In a close vote, Rhode Island voters approved Question 1, a resolution to change the state name.
The resolution removes the term “and Providence Plantations” from the official state name referenced in the Preamble, Article III, and Article IX of the Rhode Island Constitution.
The governor and several political leaders have previously removed the term from official state and local documents over the summer.
