About Election Protection

Election Protection is the nation’s largest and longest-running nonpartisan voter protection coalition in the country. Founded in 2001, the Election Protection coalition promotes a suite of voter protection hotlines supporting many different languages and organizes thousands of legal and grassroots volunteers across the country answering the hotlines, texting, working with voters in the field, and monitoring social media. The Election Protection coalition is made up of hundreds of voting rights, civil rights, and public interest groups dedicated to protecting the vote and helping voters troubleshoot issues they have when voting.

If voters have questions about voting or experience trouble when casting their ballot, they should call the Election Protection hotline to get help and report a problem. The hotlines are:

  • English: 866-OUR-VOTE (administered by the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights Under Law)
  • Spanish: 888-VE-Y-VOTA (administered by the NALEO Educational Fund)
  • Asian Languages: 888-API-VOTE (administered by APIAVote and Asian Americans Advancing Justice AAJC; Bilingual assistance is available in English, Mandarin, Cantonese, Korean, Vietnamese, and Tagalog)
  • Arabic: 844-YALLA-US (administered by the Arab American Institute)

Additionally, Election Protection monitors social media for disinformation and organizes thousands of nonpartisan field volunteers, led by Common Cause, State Voices, and local partners, to provide direct voter contact and help voters who are having problems casting their ballots.
