Your Rights, Your Vote
This November, whether you choose to vote by mail or at your polling place, you have rights when making your voice heard. Here are a few things to keep in mind if you decide
to cast your ballot in person:
- If the polls close while you’re in line, stay in line. You can still vote.
- Under federal law, you have the right to receive help at the polls if you’re a voter with a disability or have difficulty reading or writing in English.
- If an election worker can’t find your name on the list of registered voters, you’re still entitled to a provisional ballot.
- If you experience voter intimidation (a federal crime), such as aggressive questioning about your citizenship status, criminal record, or voting record, you can report it to the nonpartisan Election Protection Hotline at 866-OUR-VOTE.
