LatinoJustice PRLDEF has launched a new smartphone voter protection app tied to a broader Cada Voto Cuenta Voter Protection project to help citizens report voting rights violations while voting in the 2016 elections.
The app will allow voters to immediately report voting rights violations they might encounter on Election Day. The voter will open the app and fill out a report that will be immediately sent to LatinoJustice for legal voting rights review.
LatinoJustice PRLDEF's Cada Voto Cuenta Voter Protection Program has teamed up with the NALEO Educational Fund to provide direct access to the1-888-Ve-Y-VOTA Spanish Language Hotline directly from the app.
