BUFFALO, N.Y. — New York's early voting begins Saturday, and the state's Attorney General's office is making its Election Protection Hotline available for the June 22 primary.
Early voting runs from June 12 to June 20.
New York voters who have issues with voting during the primary can contact the hotline. Workers will be available to troubleshoot and resolve any issues voters encounter, including voting by absentee ballot.
“New Yorkers should be able to exercise their right to vote with confidence and ease," Attorney General James said. “As some states move to limit voting rights, we are doubling down on voter protection and support.
"This hotline will address any challenges voters face across the state and provide guidance for those casting a ballot. My office is committed to ensuring New Yorkers are able to vote safely and effectively and will do everything in its power to protect fair and equal elections.”
Voters who have a problem can contact the hotline at 1-800-771-7755, submit complaints online, or email firstname.lastname@example.org to request election-related assistance in advance of the election.
