ALBANY, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — Attorney General Letitia James just announced an Election Protection hotline ahead of early voting. State officials say you can use the hotline to troubleshoot and resolve a range of issues.

This hotline will address any challenges voters face across the state and provide guidance for those casting a ballot. My office is committed to ensuring New Yorkers are able to vote safely and effectively and will do everything in its power to protect fair and equal elections.”
