NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – Actress Ashley Judd talked about voting on the eve of Election Day.

She wants people to know they have the right to vote without harassment or intimidation.

“Several cycles ago, and I remember the exact polling place , I was voting. I had volunteers say to me, ‘Oh so and so was here talking about family members who voted,’ which is absolutely breaking their anonymity and confidentiality as well as mine,” Judd said.

“And I also had someone say to me, ‘You voted the wrong way.’ That is illegal,” she noted.

If you feel intimidated, you can call 877-369-0267 to report it to a group of lawyers on standby for Election Day.
