Democratic Party of Illinois Launches Voter Protection Hotline

Chicago, IL — Ahead of the March 19 Primary Election, the Democratic Party of Illinois is launching a voter protection hotline in an effort to ensure every Illinoisan can fairly cast their ballot. Voters can contact the hotline with any questions, concerns, or problems with voting they have to report. The hotline will be managed by the DPI staff and recruited volunteers and it will be accessible in English and Spanish.

Voters can reach the DPI Voter Protection Hotline by calling 855-IL-VOTES (855-458-6837).

“The right to vote is among our most sacred rights, and the Democratic Party of Illinois is committed to ensuring that every Illinoisan can exercise their voice without interference, intimidation, or confusion. Despite attempts from bad-faith Republicans to limit access to the polls, Democrats understand the importance of protecting civil rights for Illinoisans of every background,” said DPI Chair Lisa Hernandez.

In addition to the hotline, DPI has recruited volunteer attorneys who will be available to provide resources in the event of escalated voting challenges or illegal barriers to voting. The DPI Voter protection hotline will be available as of March 4, 2024 and run through the Primary Election on March 19, 2024. For specific hotline hours and answers to frequently asked questions about voting, voters can also visit www.ildems.com/vote.
