Sandy-Stricken Voters Can Count On 866-OUR-VOTE
Communities all across the East Coast are still reeling from Superstorm Sandy, which displaced thousands and left even more without power. With only two days left before Election Day, the lights are still out at polling places, and for many voters, casting their ballot is the last thing on their minds.
Fortunately, the Election Protection Coalition’s 866-OUR-VOTE hotline is making special efforts to accommodate these voters. Live, trained volunteers are answering the phones now, providing one-on-one assistance to anyone who needs it. If you need help finding your polling place, confirming your registration, or with any other questions you might have, call our toll-free number and connect to our nationwide network of non-partisan volunteers.
Common Cause and its coalition allies are also asking local media outlets to air this public service announcement informing voters about the hotline:
Because of the widespread devastation in New York and New Jersey brought by Hurricane Sandy, voters are unsure and confused about voting procedures. If listeners need free non-partisan assistance on how to cast a ballot in the midst of the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, call the Election Protection hotline 1-866-OUR-VOTE. That’s 1-866-687-8683. Volunteers are available to provide voters with one-on-one assistance and will help answer any questions voters have on new or changed voting procedures.
Remember, Election Day is this Tuesday, November 6. Call 1-866-OUR-VOTE if you have any questions. Brought to you by the Election Protection Coalition.
