If Something Goes Wrong
Chances are, you won’t have any problems voting, but just in case you do, it’s important to be prepared. If your state has voter rolls and you’re not listed, the first thing to do is to make sure you’re at the right polling place. After you confirm that you are, you should demand a provisional ballot. Remember, your vote is your voice and if you are an eligible, registered voter, you have the right to vote, whether or not a poll worker finds your name on the list or a political operative challenges your eligibility at the polls.
If you need legal help, you can call 1-866-OUR-VOTE toll free. Report long lines or voting problems to OurVoteLive.org or via Twitter with hashtag #OVLReport. If possible, use your phone to videotape the situation or interview the person affected and submit the video to VideoTheVote.org, or post it to YouTube or Twitter tagged with #VideoTheVote.
If you’re voting on an electronic machine with a paper record, verify that the record is accurate.
