Fair Elections Center has created "Know Your Voting Rights" guides for ten states where we have focused our work to help voters if they encounter problems at the polls in the 2022 midterm elections. These guides will help give in-person voters the tools to assert their rights and protect their freedom to vote. Voters have important rights under federal law, but some of these rules at the polling place vary by state. While most voters will likely have a smooth voting experience, we want to make sure that they understand what to do if they do run into challenges or other hurdles at the polls.
