The Attorney General’s Office has created a hotline to help troubleshoot and resolve issues voters may encounter at the polls during the primary election on Tuesday.

Attorney General Eric Schneiderman urges voters experiencing problems or issues at the polls to call the office’s hotline at 800-771-7755 or email civil.rights@ag.ny.gov at any time between 6:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday.

The hotline will be staffed by attorneys and staff in the office’s Civil Rights Bureau.

“The right to vote is at the heart of American democracy, and my office is deeply committed to ensuring that all eligible voters have equal access at the polls,” Attorney General Schneiderman said. “I urge all New Yorkers to immediately contact my office should they face any barriers or issues when trying to cast their vote.”

In order to vote in a party’s primary election, a voter must be affiliated with that party.

Polls open at noon and close at 9 p.m. on Tuesday. Click here to find your poll site.
