Students at William & Mary Law School are running the W&M VOTEline Tuesday, a voter assistance hotline aimed at responding to questions local residents have about voting.

The hotline serves anyone seeking information regarding his or her rights at the polls.

This non-partisan voter assistance hotline will be operated from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Election Day by student members of William & Mary Law School’s Election Law Society. Voters can call the VOTEline at 757-742-3095.

Residents also may tweet their questions to @WMElectionLaw or email them to elsvoteline@gmail.com on Election Day.

VOTEline is an annual non-partisan service provided by the William & Mary Election Law Society to prevent confusion at local election precincts. The student group has operated VOTEline since November 2007. VOTEline assistance will only be available on Election Day.

In accordance with Virginia’s Photo ID law, all in-person voters on Election Day must present an acceptable form of photo identification. Valid forms of identification include, but are not limited to, valid Virginia driver’s licenses and identification cards, valid U.S. passports, valid college or university student photo identification cards from Virginia institutions of higher education, employer-issued photo identification cards, and other government-issued photo identification cards.

For a complete list of acceptable forms of photo ID and to find out where to vote, visit www.elections.virginia.gov or contact VOTEline on Election Day.

For more information about VOTEline, e-mail Jane Chiffriller J.D. ’21 or Trevor Bernardo J.D. ’21 at elsvoteline@gmail.com.
