The lack of reliable access to information on poll locations and registration status is the principal barrier to voting across the nation,” according to Cecilia Martinez, executive director of the Reform Institute. Ms. Martinez is testifying today on these issues before the U.S. House Committee on House Administration, drawing upon data collected by the national voter assistance hotline, 866-MyVote1, which is co-managed by the Reform Institute.
