DETROIT – The Detroit Branch NAACP in its commitment to voter education, mobilization and protection is prepared to protect the vote for the upcoming Presidential Election that will be held on Tuesday, November 6, 2012.  In preparation for Election Day the Detroit Branch has taken the following measures:

Detroit Branch NAACP Voter Hotline.  The voter hotline (313-664-2424) is set up to assist voters with questions about where to vote and to report any signs of voter intimidation or suppression. The voter hotline will be open on Monday, November 5 from 1:00 P.M. till 8:00 P.M. and on Election Day from 7:00 A.M. till 9:00 P.M.

The Detroit Branch NAACP will have challengers and observers at the top 100 polling places in Detroit to ensure that voters are not intimidated at the polls.
A core of attorneys will be on-site at the Detroit Branch to investigate any claims of voter intimidation or suppression.

Online tools such as the Detroit Branch NAACP’s ABC’s of Voting and Voter Guide to help educate and inform voters before they enter the voting booth are available at www.detroitnaacp.org
“One of our top priorities is ensuring that voters face no opposition as they head to the polls and vote,” says Rev. Dr. Wendell Anthony, President, Detroit Branch NAACP. 

“We are aware that Republican challengers plan to come into Detroit and we will make sure they are respecting the voters and the process.  We are extremely pleased that a legal team from the US Department of Justice Voting Rights section in Washington, DC, and the US Attorneys Office in Detroit will be monitoring polls in the Detroit area to ensure that voters will be able to cast their ballots free from intimidation.”
The Detroit Branch NAACP’s commitment to election protection, education and mobilization is a part of its “Take Your Souls to the Polls” Campaign.  Detroit Branch NAACP representatives are available for interviews regarding their election protection strategy.  To schedule an interview please contact either Tonie Bell at tbell@wardhillmedia.com, (313) 802-1817 or LaToya Henry at lhenry@wardhillmedia.com, (313) 447-6404.
