The Attorney General’s Civil Rights Bureau will be available to help voters experiencing problems at the polls from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. Tuesday.
The hotline can be reached by calling 800-771-7755 or emailing email@example.com.
“All eligible New York voters should be able to freely exercise their right to vote,” Attorney General Barbara Underwood said in a statement. “If any New Yorker encounters barriers to voting or other problems at their poll sites, please contact my office immediately.”
To avoid the appearance of a conflict of interest, inquiries regarding the attorney general’s race will be referred to the local Board of Elections or an independent voter helpline.
Last year, the Attorney General’s Office secured a consent decree with the New York City Board of Elections regarding voter registration purges.
The Attorney General’s Election Day Hotline is being coordinated by Assistant Attorneys General Conor Duffy of the Civil Rights Bureau and Mark Ladov of the Consumer Frauds and Protection Bureau and led by Civil Rights Bureau Chief Lourdes Rosado. The Social Justice Division is led by Executive Deputy Attorney General Matthew Colangelo.
