ABA/Section Co-sponsors Election Protection Project

The ABA Board of Governors approved in August 2004, the Section's request to co-sponsor the Lawyers' Committee Election Protection Program, a non-partisan, national partnership committed to encouraging voter participation and protecting every citizens' right to vote. The Program, active in over 30 states, helps voters register and cast their ballots, provides voter assistance and advice with volunteer lawyers, law students, and poll monitors, and offers a toll-free voter assistance hotline, 1-866-OUR-VOTE. For more information about the Project, contact the Section office at 202/662-1030.
