Election Day hotline aims to help voters


ALBANY, N.Y. -- A recently announced Election Day hotline aims to help voters.

Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman announced the hotline that will help ensure that minority-language voters, people with disabilities and all eligible voters are able to cast an effective ballot during the June 24 federal primary election.

The Attorney General urges voters to call the office’s hotline at 800-771-7755 or email civil.rights@ag.ny.gov at any time between 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. Tuesday to report issues or problems at the polls. The hotline will be staffed by attorneys and staff in the office's Civil Rights Bureau. Hearing-impaired voters can call 800-788-9898 for TDD services.

“The right to vote remains one of our most important civil rights. My office remains committed to enforcement of the Voting Rights Act and other federal and state laws that require that all voters be provided equal access to the ballot box," said Schneiderman. "Our Election Day hotline will help ensure that all eligible voters across our state are able to exercise their constitutionally-protected right to vote on Election Day."
