About Us

The national, nonpartisan Election Protection coalition was formed to ensure that all voters have an equal opportunity to participate in the political process. Made up of more than 100 local, state and national partners, Election Protection works year-round to advance and defend the right to vote.

Election Protection provides Americans from coast to coast with comprehensive voting information on how they can make sure their vote is counted through a number of resources including: 1) a suite of voter helplines: 866-OUR-VOTE (led by the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law), 888-Ve-Y-Vota (led by the NALEO Educational Fund), and 888-API-VOTE (led by APIAVote & Asian Americans Advancing Justice-AAJC); 2) voter protection field programs across the country (both legal (managed by the Lawyers' Committee and grassroots (managed by Common Cause); and 3) digital tools including 866ourvote.org, @866ourVote, and facebook.com/866OurVote.

Throughout the election, our volunteers collect information to paint a picture of election irregularities. Election Protection focuses on the voter - not on the political horse race - and provides guidance, information and help to any American, regardless of who that voter is casting a ballot for.
