Ahead of Early Voting, State Launches Election Protection Hotline


The New York Office of the Attorney General will make its Election Protection Hotline available for the upcoming June 27th primary election and during New York’s early voting period, which runs from Saturday through June 25th.

The hotline will be available to troubleshoot and resolve a range of issues encountered by voters, including voting by absentee ballot or in person at their polling place. Voters that experience problems can report issues to OAG by calling the hotline at (866) 390-2992 or submitting complaints online.

“The right to vote is paramount to the integrity of our democracy,” said Attorney General Letitia James. “Our election protection hotline is a key resource available to all New Yorkers throughout our great state to provide helpful guidance and address concerns. Whether they are voting by mail, stopping by an early voting site, or casting their ballot in person at the polls, my office will ensure that New Yorkers can securely and effectively participate in our electoral process.”

Voters who have concerns or are experiencing problems are encouraged to call OAG’s hotline at (866) 390-2992 or submit complaints online to request election-related assistance in advance of the election. Written requests may be submitted at any time through the online complaint form. Hotline calls and online complaints or requests for election-related assistance are processed by OAG attorneys and staff.

The telephone hotline will be open between 9:00 AM and 6:00 PM on Saturday, June 17 through Sunday, June 25, and between 6:00 AM and 9:00 PM on Election Day, Tuesday, June 27. The hotline will also be open following the election, between 9:00 AM and 6:00 PM on both Wednesday, June 28 and Thursday, June 29.
