What are my rights as a voter?

  • Stay in line: If your polling place closes while you’re already in line, don’t go anywhere! You’re allowed to vote so long as you’re in line before the polling place closes at 7pm.

  • If your name is not on the voter list:

    • Ask the poll worker to double check for your name on the list of registered voters. Make sure to spell your name out.

    • If your name is not on the list, ask if there is a supplemental list of voters.

    • If the poll worker still cannot find your name, confirm that you are at the correct polling place:

    • Request that the poll workers check a statewide system to see if you are registered to vote at a different polling place.

    • If the poll worker does not have access to a statewide system, ask them to call the main election office.

    • You can also call 1-866-OUR-VOTE and ask for help verifying your proper polling place.

    • If the poll worker still cannot find your name or if you cannot travel to the correct polling place, ask for a provisional ballot

  • Voter intimidation: It’s illegal to intimidate voters and ia federal crime to intimidate, threaten or coerce any voter. You can give a sworn statement to a poll worker that you satisfy the qualifications to vote in your state, and then cast your ballot.

    • Report intimidation to the Election Protection Hotline at 1-866-OUR-VOTE or 1-888-VE-Y-VOTA (en Español).

  • Mistake on ballot: If you make a mistake on your ballot, you can ask for a new one

  • Machines: If the machines are down at your polling place, ask for a paper ballot

  • Non English speakers: Under federal law, voters who have difficulty reading, speaking, or writing English may receive in-person assistance at the polls from the person of their choice. This person, however, cannot be the voter’s employer, an agent of the voter’s employer, or an agent or officer of the voter’s union. Bring a family member or a friend!

  • People living with a disability:

    • Under federal law, all polling places for federal elections must be fully accessible to older adults and voters with disabilities.

    • Every polling place must have at least one voting system that allows voters with disabilities to vote privately and independently.  

    • Under federal law, voters with disabilities and voters who have difficulty reading or writing English have the right to receive
      in-person help at the polls from the person of their choice.

    • A voter with a mental disability cannot be turned away from the polls because a poll worker thinks they are not ‘qualified’ to vote.

  • Identification: A poll worked may request an ID Requested, but a photo ID is not required. If you do not have an ID, you may sign a statement affirming your identity, and then cast a regular ballot.

  • Election Protection Hotlines & bilingual voting help:

    • English: 1-866-OUR-VOTE / 1-866-687-8683
