National: Lawyers’ Committee spearheading election protection efforts in communities across U.S. | Wisconsin Gazette

With Election Day in many states less a week away, Election Protection, the nation’s largest nonpartisan voter protection coalition, is ramping up its efforts to safeguard voting rights across the country. Multiple states have attempted to impose severe restrictions on the right to vote. While courts have batted down many of these efforts to limit the franchise, the confusion surrounding recent rulings and the lack of accurate information could disrupt voting this election cycle. The Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law is spearheading Election Protection’s efforts to protect voters this election cycle, using hotlines, field monitors and voter education, as well as its expansive network of national partners and state advocates, to respond to any questions or concerns voters may have.

… 866-OUR-VOTE hotline is a resource for voters and would-be voters across the country who seek to report complaints or otherwise access information needed to meaningfully participate in elections in their community.

During the early vote period and on Election Day, which is Nov. 7, Election Protection volunteers are available to assist voters with issues, problems, or questions that arise in the early voting process.

Voters may call 866-OUR-VOTE (866-687-8683) toll-free with any questions or issues that may arise.

Spanish-speaking voters may seek bilingual assistance through the 888-VE-Y-VOTA (888-839-8682) hotline.
