ELECTION DAY GUIDES
Know Your Rights on Election Day!
If the polls close while you’re still in line, stay in line – you have the right to vote.
If you make a mistake on your ballot, ask for a new one.
If the machines are down at your polling place, ask for a paper ballot.
If you are a voter with a disability, under federal law, all polling places for federal elections must be fully accessible to older adults and voters with disabilities.
*Simply allowing curbside voting is not enough to meet Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) accessibility requirements.*
It’s illegal to intimidate voters and a federal crime to “intimidate, with the right of [that] other person to vote or to vote as he may choose.”
What to do if you experience threaten, [or] coerce … any other person for the purpose of interfering voter intimidation:
Report intimidation to the Election Protection Hotline at 1-866-OUR-VOTE or 1-888-VE-Y-VOTA (en Español).
Report intimidation to your local election officials. Their offices will be open on Election Day.
