THE ELECTION INCIDENT REPORTING SYSTEM

Group Assists U.S. Citizens in Voting
October 31, 2004

A coalition of public-interest groups offers websites and a U.S. toll-free telephone hotline to report, track, and respond to U.S. election voting questions and problems. The "Election Incident Reporting System" (EIRS) //verifiedvoting.org/eirs/ helps citizens to vote and have their votes counted as intended. EIRS and related helpful resources are available now and beyond November 2nd.

Voters can call a U.S. toll-free number 1-866-OUR-VOTE (1-866-687-8683) to report voting irregularities or problems, request assistance, or ask for information. If needed, "rapid response" teams of trained attorneys and technologists will be dispatched.

There is also a "do-it-yourself" incident reporting form on the Web at //voteproblem.org . This alternative is for those who want to report a voting issue, but may not want to talk to an operator, or may prefer the convenience of web reporting from anywhere anytime. Although these web reports may not come to the attention of anyone in time to help in this election, they will be included in the EIRS total documentation for the 2004 Elections.

Anyone can view selected details of incidents at
//voteprotect.org/index.php?display=EIRMapNation .
Interactive maps show incidents in the country by each state and county by problem type.

In addition to assisting voters in the 2004 elections, the EIRS is collecting data on 2004 election incidents that will be made available for scholars, policymakers, the press, and the public. EIRS founders believe the collected data may also be useful for post-election litigation and legislation. EIRS data is available at //voteprotect.org now and will continue to be updated.

For reporting election irregularities, use the U.S. toll-free hotline at 1-866-OUR-VOTE (1-866-687-8683), or the "do-it-yourself" form at //voteproblem.org . To find and follow the reports use //voteprotect.org/index.php?display=EIRMapNation .

EIRS is sponsored by Computer Professionals for Social Responsibility, The Verified Voting Foundation, and the Election Protection Coalition. The Election Protection Coalition represents more than 60 member organizations representing a combined membership of over three million Americans. More information about these organizations can be found at:
