BROOKLYN - The New York Civil Liberties Union launched a new campaign to educate people about their right to vote ? including former criminals.

According to the New York Civil Liberties Union, studies show that most convicted criminals think they have lost their right to vote. They also say that election officials are unsure of the law.

The new campaign includes bus advertisements and web videos, which educate the public about their rights. They have also established the Election Protection Hotline, where citizens who have trouble registering or voting can call for help. The number is 1-866-OUR-VOTE.
