EAST PROVIDENCE -- A polling place in East Providence has been closed after a suspicious white powder was found.
Maryann Callahan, canvassing authority administrator, said the Grove Avenue Elementary School was closed after a poll worker found a white powder on the floor, touched it and developed a rash around 11:30 a.m.
The worker was taken to a hospital.
Nine poll workers have quarantined.
Some 307 people had voted before the substance was discovered.
Callahan says they hope to reopen the voting site. Hazardous materials teams and decontamination teams are now on the scene.
