BALTIMORE (AP) - Maryland Democrats are reminding voters of their rights ahead of the Nov. 4 election and have set up a hotline to respond to any problems at the polls.

The hotline was announced Wednesday by the Maryland Democratic Party, Sen. Ben Cardin and Congressman Elijah Cummings.

Cardin says there’ve been no major problems of voter suppression in Maryland, which doesn’t have a voter identification law. But Cardin says no one knows what could happen this election cycle, and voters need to rest assured that suppression efforts won’t be tolerated.

Amanda LaForge, an attorney with the Maryland Democratic Party, says the voter hotline will be staffed by attorneys who will take reports of long lines, voters being turned away, misleading literature, malfunctioning machines and other problems

The hotline is 1-888-678-VOTE.
