Voter Intimidation

The right of each voter to cast his or her ballot free from intimidation or coercion is a foundational principle of a free and democratic society. Federal law prohibits voter intimidation.

What should I do if I see or experience voter intimidation?

  • If you fear imminent violence, call 9-1-1.
  • Notify your local election official at your polling place.
  • Document what you saw or experienced: what happened, where, and when, and whether any voters were deterred from voting.
  • Call Election Protection at 866-OUR-VOTE (866-687-8683). Assistance is also available in Spanish at 888-VE-Y-VOTA (888- 839-8682), in Arabic at 844-YALLA-US (844-915- 5187), and Asian languages at 888-API-VOTE (1-888-174-8683).

What should I do if I see armed groups near a polling place or voter registration drive?

First, document what you see:

➢   What are the armed people doing?
➢   What are the armed people wearing?
➢   Are they carrying firearms?  If so, what type? If not, are they carrying other types of weapons?
➢   Are they wearing insignia?  If so, what does it say or look like?
➢   Are they bearing signs or flags?
➢   Do they seem to be patrolling like a law enforcement officer might do?
➢   Do they seem to be coordinating their actions?
➢   Do they have a leader?
➢   Are they stopping or talking to people outside of their group?
➢   Do they appear to be provoking or threatening violence?  If so, what are they doing specifically?
➢   Are people turning away from the polling station after seeing or speaking with them?

Second, call Election Protection at 866-OUR-VOTE (866-687-8683) to report what you see.
