Numbers you need to report election fraud, discrimination

Posted: Updated:

Assistant U.S. Attorneys Pat Meadows and Ramona Albin will lead efforts of the U.S. Attorney's Office in connection with the Department of Justice's nationwide Election Day Program for the upcoming Nov. 6 general elections, First Assistant U.S. Attorney John England just announced.

"Every citizen must be able to vote without interference or discrimination, and to have that vote counted without it being stolen because of fraud," England said. "The Department of Justice will act promptly and aggressively to protect the integrity of the election process," Meadows said.

In order to respond to complaints of election fraud or voting rights abuses on Nov. 6, and to ensure that such complaints are directed to the appropriate authorities, Meadows and Albin will be on duty in this district while the polls are open, England said. The public can reach them by telephone at 205-244-2001.

In addition, the FBI will have special agents available in each field office and resident agency throughout the country to receive allegations of election fraud and other election abuses on election day. The FBI field office in Birmingham can be reached by the public at 205-326-6166.

Complaints about ballot access problems or discrimination can be made directly to the Civil Rights Division's Voting Section in Washington at 1-800-253-3931 or (202) 307-2767.
