The wait and the work are almost over—the elections are this Tuesday, November 6. Between now and then, though, we have to vote ourselves (if you haven’t already voted early), turn out our family and friends, and get out the vote in our communities. Here are some ways to GOTV, some important information sources, and resources for protecting the right to vote.

What about people who run into a roadblock to exercising their right to vote, though? There are thousands of trained nonpartisan volunteers staffing these hotlines—open now through election day—to answer questions and help address any problems voters have.

  • Spanish 888-VE-Y-VOTA (888-839-8682)
  • Arabic 844-YALLA-US (844-925-5287)
