Seems like every election, conservatives fear voter fraud.

Liberals fear voter discrimination.

(Daily RFT fears other voters, who are strangers and not be trusted.)

What should you do if you witness fraud, discrimination or other malfeasance?

You could call Assistant U.S. Attorney John Bodenhausen at (314) 539-7733. He's been appointed to field complaints of irregularities and will be available from 6 am to 7 pm on election day.

You could also call the FBI's field office in St. Louis at (314) 589-2500. They'll be taking complaints, too.

Another option for those who witness discrimination is to call the voting section of the DOJ's Civil Rights Division in D.C. The numbers there are 1-800-253-3931 or 202-307-2767.

The state of Missouri has a hotline for general questions:  1-800-669-8683.

We'll do a separate post next week on election day basics.
