If You’re Having Trouble Voting

This came in from (bipartisan) Common Cause this morning. It’s a handy guide.

Tuesday is Election Day. It’s the one day we are all equal. We can stand up and have our say. If you haven’t voted already, here are a few important tips.

*Call 1-866-OUR-VOTE, the Election Protection Hotline, to verify your registration status, locate your precinct, learn what ID you may need at the polls, and get answers to other election-related questions. The toll-free line is staffed today from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. EST, Monday from 8:30 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. EST, and 6 a.m. EST until the polls close nation-wide on Election Day. You can also email the hotline at [email protected]

*Have a smartphone? Text OURVOTE to 90975 to download the free Election Protection Smartphone app. It can help you find your polling place, verify your registration status, and access other voter education materials.

*If you encounter long lines or your right to vote is questioned at the polls, or if you see other voters having difficulty, please call 1-866-OUR-VOTE immediately. We have folks ready and willing to help.

*Share this message with your family and friends. We want everyone to know and to exercise their rights.

When we vote we are all equal. Stand up and have your say. Vote.
