The Washington State Democratic Party has established a new voter protection hotline — (206) 309-8683 — where voters can receive help with registration and voting issues, report potential voter suppression incidents, and speak with attorneys about election-related matters.
Party Chair Tina Podlodowski said the hotline “is an important tool for protecting voters and providing them with a free source of accurate and timely information.”
The hotline is monitored by attorneys familiar with Washington state election law, and can provide answers to a variety of questions, including those related to voter registration status, rules and deadlines for voting by mail and by drop-box, provisional ballots, signature challenges, processing and tabulation of ballots, and voter intimidation and misinformation activities.
The hotline is free of charge and is currently accepting calls. It will be a permanent, standing resource provided by the Washington State Democrats, and will assist voters in both this election cycle and in future elections.
