Nationwide Election Protection Hotline Up and Running

1-866-OUR-VOTE (1-866-687-8683)

The nationwide Election Protection Hotline was activated on October 16 to help resolve issues for Election Day on November 7.
The number is staffed with live volunteers from 9 AM-6 PM Eastern time.

Election Protection guides voters through the voting process, helping to ensure that all eligible voters have the opportunity to cast a meaningful ballot and have their vote counted.

You can contact them with issues before, on, or after the election. Issues are recorded in an Election Incident Reporting System (EIRS) to allow responding to issues in real time as well as provide data for investigations after the election.

Election Protection, the nation's largest non-partisan voter protection coalition, is led by the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law's National Campaign for Fair Elections, the NAACP, the National Bar Association, and People For the American Way Foundation.
