UCLA School of Law is privileged to be able to play an active role in this year’s national, nonpartisan Election Protection efforts to ensure that all voters have an equal opportunity to participate in the political process.
Election Protection, a coalition of more than 100 local, state and national partners coordinated by the Lawyers Committee for Civil Rights Under Law, is the nation’s most ambitious nonpartisan effort to prevent Election Day disenfranchisement. 
Through Election Protection’s state of the art hotlines: 1-866-OUR-VOTE (administered by the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law) and 1-888-Ve-Y-Vota (administered by the National Association of Latino Elected and Appointed Officials Education Fund), the website - http://www.866ourvote.org, and comprehensive voter protection field programs across the country, Election Protection provides Americans from coast to coast with comprehensive voter information and advice on how they can make sure their vote is counted.
Throughout the election process, Election Protection’s volunteers - more than 10,000 strong - will be entering data and information into OurVote live (developed by the Electronic Frontier Foundation), an interactive environment painting the most comprehensive picture of election irregularities from the perspective of the voter available anywhere. Unique in the excitement of this political season, Election Protection focuses on the voter - not on the political horse race - and provides guidance, information and help to any American, regardless of who that voter is casting a ballot for.
