Hotline Helps Voters With Primary Day Questions

If you have a questions about today's primary ballot, there is a number to call for assistance.

Gurnal Scott: Faculty and law students at UNC Chapel Hill will staff a toll-free hotline to answer your Primary Day questions. Two years ago during the 2010 midterm election, the hotline got more than 300 calls. It's anticipated that number will be higher this year with newly-drawn district lines in effect. The UNC Center for Civil Rights is partnering with Election Protection, a national program, to ensure all who are eligible have the chance to cast a ballot. Voters across the state can call 1-888-687-8683. Assistance is also available in Spanish at 1-888-839-8682. The hotline will run until the polls close at 7:30 tonight.
