FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Citizens encouraged to report illegal activity at the voting polls by phone, email and video
HOUSTON, TX. November 5, 2012 ― True the Vote (TTV), the nonpartisan election integrity organization, today announced the availability of its Election Integrity Hotline, to help document illegal activity inside or outside of America’s polling places.
“If you want to make a difference on November 6th, True the Vote has a job for you,” True the Vote President Catherine Engelbrecht said. “Election integrity captured the American conscience with a rough cell phone video of New Black Panthers intimidating voters in Pennsylvania in 2008. Intimidation and electioneering is illegal inside and outside of polls. You have the power to be America’s eyes and ears.”
Concerned citizens are encouraged to report any incidents outside of polling locations with True the Vote’s official Election Integrity Hotline (http://www.truethevote.org/incident-report/). Citizens may submit incidents over the phone by dialing 855-444-6100. Descriptions and photos should be directed to [email protected]. True the Vote will verify credible reports and submit those appropriate local authorities.
True The Vote (TTV) a nonpartisan, nonprofit grassroots organization focused on preserving election integrity is operated by citizens for citizens, to inspire and equip volunteers for involvement at every stage of our electoral process. TTV empowers organizations and individuals across the nation to actively protect the rights of legitimate voters, regardless of their political party affiliation.
