What to do if you have trouble voting...

Today's Elections won't be decided by the remaining 3% undecided vote, it will be decided by which side's people is more dedicated and turn out to vote in greater numbers. Voter turnout is expected to be the highest since 1968. Please bring everyone you can with you to the polls. And even if you need to wait in line, your effort could make the difference!!

Here is some information to help. Try to vote early, in case you encounter any problems. If you are in line before the polls close, you still have the right to vote. I received a call Monday giving me the WRONG VOTING LOCATION! Don't be fooled be anyone trying to disenfranchize your vote.


Where to vote - call your county Board of Elections clerk or look it up at:

1-866-OUR-VOTE. This hotline has been set up by a coalition of nonpartisan groups to deal with the most serious problems on election day. They have hundreds of lawyers standing by to immediately respond to the most egregious problems. 1-866-OUR-VOTE is the "911" of voter suppression hotlines. Please don't call unless your problem is serious enough that you have to talk to a lawyer immediately.
