Attorney General Barbara Underwood announced her office’s Election Day Hotline, which is available to help troubleshoot and resolve a range of issues encountered by voters at the polls during the general election on Tuesday.
The Attorney General urges voters experiencing problems or issues at the polls to call the office’s hotline at 800-771-7755 or email firstname.lastname@example.org at any time between 6:00 AM and 9:00 PM on Tuesday. The hotline will be staffed by attorneys and staff in the Attorney General’s Civil Right’s Bureau.
“All eligible New York voters should be able to freely exercise their right to vote,” said Attorney General Underwood. “If any New Yorker encounters barriers to voting or other problems at their poll sites, please contact my office immediately.”
The Election Day hotline is part of the office’s ongoing effort to reduce barriers to voting. To avoid any potential conflict of interest, inquiries regarding any campaign for Attorney General will be referred to the local Board of Elections or an independent voter helpline.
Attorney General Underwood reminds all registered voters that they have the right to accessible elections. In addition, all registered voters have the right to vote free from coercion or intimidation, whether by election officials or any other person.
