What happens if you go to vote and your name isn’t on the roll?

“Go to the poll worker in charge. Raise the issue. if they don’t help, call 866-OUR-VOTE. We’re based in Washington, DC, this is the hub. We have 4500 legal volunteers. We get on the phone with local election officials. We roll up our sleeves and do the hard work. We will go to court if necessary.”

Where are the problem areas?

“We never know what’s gong to happen, but these states that are in play…we can see problems anywhere. It can happen as early as in the parking lot with someone saying you can’t park there.”
