Election Protection Coalition: 1-866-OUR-VOTE

The nonpartisan Election Protection Coalition was organized in response to the 2000 elections in which more than four million voters and potential voters were disenfranchised. If, on or before election day, you are someone you know has their voting rights violated, please call 1-866-OUR-VOTE or visit to report the case to the Election Protection Coalition. If you are harassed or intimidated while voting or trying to vote, call 1-866-OUR-VOTE. If there are irregularities at your polling place, call 1-866-OUR-VOTE. If you have technical difficulties while voting or attempting to vote, call 1-866-OUR-VOTE. If you are denied the right to vote, call 1-866-OUR-VOTE.

In addition, volunteers are needed to work before, during and/or after Election Day. There is a special need for lawyers, law students, clergy and Spanish-speakers. Please consider donating time or donating money to make sure that what happened in 2000 does not happen again. Click here to volunteer.
