Voting Hotline -- Report problems at 1-866-OUR-VOTE

Verified Voting and a coalition of nonprofit organizations is sponsoring a toll-free hotline voters in California and other states can use to report any problems experienced today at polling places. The hotline number is 1-866-OUR-VOTE. Excerpts from their announcement are featured below.


If you experience any problem casting your ballot -- finding the polling place, voter intimidation, accessibility issues, voting machine problems, provisional ballot issues, etc. -- or you witness anyone having voting problems, please immediately call 1-866-OUR-VOTE to report the problem.


Verified Voting Foundation volunteers and staff have developed a new version of the "Election Incident Reporting System" (EIRS) to record all problems reported to 1-866-OUR-VOTE. Since 2004, hundreds of organizations and thousands of individuals in the United States have used EIRS to help protect our right to vote and assure that every vote is counted as cast.
