Protecting voter access, that's the name of the game this Primary Day.

On Wednesday, New York Attorney General Barbara Underwood announced the launch of a hotline to help troubleshoot and resolve any issues voters may encounter when heading to the polls on Thursday.

The Attorney General is urging anyone who experiences problems or issues at the polls to call the office's hotline at 800-771-7755 or email civil.rights@ag.ny.gov.  The hotline will be open between 6:00AM and 9:00PM on Thursday. 

"Voting is a fundamental right, and all eligible voters should be able to freely exercise that right, " said Attorney General Underwood. "Any New Yorkers who encounter barriers to voting or other problems at their polls sites should immediately contact my office."

Voters registered in New York, outside of New York City can find their polling site by clicking here.

Polls will be open from 6:00AM until 9:00PM on Thursday.
