For voting problems or if you need to talk to a lawyer, the nonpartisan Election Protection Coalition has launched its national voter assistance hotline (1.866.OUR.VOTE or

The National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials (www.naleo.org/veyvota.html) has set up a national nonpartisan, bilingual hotline.
* Am I registered to vote?
* How do I vote absentee?
* Where is my polling place?
* What is provisional voting?
* Can I vote early?
* My name is not on the list and they do not let me vote?
* I have not received my sample ballot?
* What information will be on the ballot?
* I went to the polling place and was denied assistance.
All voter rights complaints and obstacles to voting encountered by the voters will be documented and monitored.
