Jimmy Marlow, NEWS10 – ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – A close presidential race is expected to bring lots of Americans out to vote today. But high turnout could mean complications at the polls.

If you're going to vote, but have some questions about the process, a hotline has been established to help you make sure your vote counts.

Election Protection is a hotline aimed at making the voting process as efficient as possible.

The hotline is based in Washington, D.C., but they have 23 call centers located across the country on Election Day, with more than 1,000 trained legal volunteers from more than 100 national, state, and local organizations answering the phones.

Volunteers are available to answer questions about voter registration, finding your polling place, and reporting problems with the elections system.

The hotline also offers options to speak to a volunteer in a language other than English.
