"Election Protection" Hotline At UNC Law

There’s a toll-free, non-partisan election hotline available for voters with Election Day questions or problems.

Leoneda Inge:  Faculty and staff at UNC’s law school will be fielding calls as part of the national advocacy protection initiative called “Election Protection.” The number to call is – 1-866-OUR-VOTE.  Elizabeth Haddix is senior staff attorney at the UNC Law Center for Civil Rights.  She expects a lot of calls.

Elizabeth Haddix:  Well the voter ID initiative in North Carolina has been very confusing for people.  I know that this is true across the country, but in NC you don’t have to have an ID with you unless it’s your first time to vote, you registered by mail and you didn’t provide identification in that registration application.

About 600 calls came in during early voting in North Carolina. The UNC Law School phone bank will be in operation until 7:30 tonight.

Leoneda Inge is WUNC’s race and southern culture reporter, the first public radio journalist in the South to hold such a position. She also is co-host of the podcast Tested and host of the special podcast series, PAULI. Leoneda is the recipient of numerous awards from AP, RTDNA and NABJ. She’s been a reporting fellow in Berlin and Tokyo. You can follow her on Twitter @LeonedaInge.
