Election Protection has the nation’s largest voter assistance hotline (866-OUR-VOTE). As of today, they have received 80,000 calls seeking assistance. Here are the trends:

–Broward County leads Florida in voter requests for assistance.

–Registration-related problems rank #1 in nearly every battleground state – hundreds of calls focus on that problem, most often in Texas, New York, New Jersey, Georgia, Florida, Colorado, and California

–Georgia voters are reporting more incidents of voter intimidation than any other state. Other reports of voter intimidation, scams or misinformation are also emerging in Ohio and Missouri.

–Florida voters rank #1 in requests related to criminal status and voting.

–Early voting problems are also being noticed, particularly Ohio, Missouri, Georgia, Florida and California
