CONCORD - The U.S. Attorney's Office for the District of New Hampshire on Thursday announced the establishment of a Primary Day hotline that will be monitored throughout Primary Day on Tuesday 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The hotline number is 603-230-2503. Inquiries and complaints may also be submitted through the U.S. Attorney's Office website at www.usdoj.gov/usao/nh by clicking on the "e-mail us" link.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Seth R. Aframe will oversee complaints of election fraud and abuse of voting rights in consultation with Justice Department Headquarters in Washington.
In order to respond to these complaints and address any abuse of voting rights, Aframe will be on duty while the polls are open.
U.S. Attorney Scott W. Murray said, "Under our Constitution, the right to vote is fundamental. Protecting the individual right to vote and assuring the legitimacy of the election process are critical Department of Justice priorities. Information about discrimination, intimidation or election fraud should be reported immediately to my office, the FBI, or the DOJ Civil Rights Division."
Complaints about ballot access problems or discrimination may also be made directly to the Civil Rights Division's Voting Section in Washington at 1-800-253-3931.
