You can stop voter intimidation.
If it happens to you or you see it happening, take the following steps:
Document everything you can, include date, time and location, and report it to election officials. Photos and videos are very helpful.
- Report it to your county Board of Elections and the county District Attorney.
- Call the Election Protection Hotline:
- English: 1-866-Our-Vote
- Spanish: 1-888-Ve-Y-Vota
- Asian and Pacific Islander: 888-API-Vote
- Call the US Department of Justice voting rights hotline:
Avoid confronting trouble-makers directly.
Fights or police presence can also intimidate voters.
