Texas voters should feel safe and supported as they cast their votes.
For several years, Common Cause Texas has helped to lead a nonpartisan voter protection coalition for the state of Texas that seeks to ensure that every eligible voter who wants to vote can and that every vote is counted accurately. Our Election Protection program is not affiliated with any party, candidate or issue campaign.
Voters who experience any difficulties while voting are encouraged to use the following hotlines to get live advice from our attorneys. These hotlines will be connected to response teams on the ground to address problems as they occur.
As part of this program, we recruit, train and supervise poll watchers to be an integral part of the project. Poll watchers are volunteers during Early Voting and on Election Day who assist voters in obtaining information about accessing the ballot box. After attending a one-hour training, they will have answers to voters’ frequently asked questions and have websites and toll-free numbers on hand to direct voters for additional assistance.
