CADEM Launches its Voter Protection Hotline Early Amidst the CA GOP’s Refusal to Remove Unauthorized Ballot Drop Boxes

SACRAMENTO, CA – The California Democratic Party (CADEM) is set to launch the Voter Protection Hotline early amidst the California GOP’s announcement to expand the use of unofficial and illegal ballot drop boxes. The Hotline, which will open October 16 until polls close on November 3, is a part of CADEM’s Voter Protection Team.

“Sadly, this is par for the course from California Republicans,” says CADEM Chair Rusty Hicks. “While unable to win an election fair and square, California Republicans have chosen to follow Trump’s playbook to lie, cheat and steal their way into a win – if we let them,” Hicks continued. “That’s why the California Democratic Party will launch our hotline early to ensure California’s 21 million registered voters have the answers they need to make their voices heard at the ballot box.”

For nearly 30 years, CADEM worked with community organizations across the State of California to protect the rights of all voters and ensure that every vote is counted through its Voter Protection Team. This year, the team includes more than 400 volunteers which involves hundreds of attorneys and remote hotline operators.

“During this year’s election, we redeveloped our statewide Voter Protection Team to ensure that voters have the resources to combat acts of voter suppression,” said CADEM Executive Director, Yvette Martinez. “The mission is to work together to turn out and protect voters in all corners of the state,” continued Martinez.

The Voter Protection Hotline is available in English, Spanish, Mandarin and Cantonese: (877) 321- VOTE (8683)

More information on the Voter Protection Team can be found here.
