Election protection resources

The following resources focus on election protection. They are produced by the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights, who have set up a national hotline for any voting problems: 1-866-Our-Vote. For information on fundamental voting rights and commonly asked questions, go to http://www.866ourvote.org/elections-101 . For pages with state-specific laws and pdf's with more detailed information on your state's election laws, click on

http://www.866ourvote.org/state .

In addition, for information on the voting rights of the disabled from the National Disability Rights Network, go to http://bit.ly/bokzr8 . "Voters can go the polls with peace of mind, knowing that the system has improved," said Barbara J. Easterling, President of the Alliance. "However, if you do experience a problem, help is available. Don't go home without casting your ballot."

1. Thanks.
People with voting problems should call both 1 866 OUR VOTE & 1 866 MY VOTE1. Also, they should contact Vote411.org (League of Women Voters site). Since several different organizations are undertaking election protection activities, tell all of them. That way, there is a greater chance the person who is having voting problems will be able to vote, and each organization will have an accurate count of irregularities to report, after elections.
