The “Honest and Open Election Hotline ” has been launched by the McCain campaign to help voters find their polling place and report fraud, and intimidation.
The phone hotline can be reached at 866-976-VOTE.
In announcing the hotline, McCain’s national political director, Mike Duhaime issued the following statement:
In 2004, multiple forms of voter fraud occurred, including voter intimidation, fraudulent registrations, multiple ballots cast and votes bought for money. Already during the 2008 election cycle, a dead woman in Missouri cast an absentee ballot, individuals were arrested for voting twice in Florida and people in Ohio registered and voted on the same day.
In anticipation of voting problems resulting from the combination of an expected high turnout and millions of new voters, both campaigns have lined up literally thousands of lawyers to deal with Election Dayimproprieties. According to the Times, the Obama campaign is expected to send at least 5,000 lawyers to Florida alone.
