Election Day Hotline: Problems? Questions?

For the 15th year, a free, nonpartisan hotline will answer questions and resolve problems.
By calling the 1-866-OUR-VOTE hotline (or 888-VE-Y-Vota), voters can confirm their registration status, find their polling location, and get answers to questions about proper identification at the polls. This information is also available on line from the State Election Commission
