888-OUR-VOTE is North Carolina's premier nonpartisan voter hotline. Our volunteers answer calls from voters across the state who have voting questions or who have experienced problems while voting. The hotline is 100% virtual, so volunteers will get trained and answer calls from home.

Project Frequency

2-3 Times per Month Commitment

Project Time Commitment

Shifts are 3-4 hours in length, and we ask for a minimum of at least 3 shifts per volunteer per election cycle. For Spring 2022, the hotline will be answered by volunteers from April 28-May 27.
