Call 866-OUR-VOTE Election Protection Hotline for Voter Assistance

Election Protection is the nation’s largest and longest-running nonpartisan voter protection coalition which works year round to safeguard voting rights in Michigan and across the country. For Tuesday’s primary election, the Election Protection  866-OUR-VOTE (866-687-8683) hotline will be available to help voters when polls open at 7:00 am until the polls close at 8:00pm ET. The hotline provides voters with information, guidance and assistance, and responds to complaints or obstacles to voting. 

“Election Protection stands ready to help ensure that every eligible voter in Michigan has the opportunity to exercise the fundamental right to vote,” said Kristen Clarke, president and executive director of the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law. “Through the Election Protection 866-OUR-VOTE hotline, our network of thousands of legal volunteers and over 200 partner organizations, we are bringing an army of resources to beat back the structural and informational barriers that voters may face. Our goal is to ensure that voters across Michigan know that there is a resource they can turn to if they have any questions or need assistance when voting.”
