Voter Hotline Set Up for Presidential Primary

Polls for the presidential primary open at 6 a.m. on Tuesday and a hotline has been set up to help voters.

Anyone who encounters a problem at the polls should call 866-SEEC-INFO hotline or email

The hotline and email address will be monitored between 6 a.m. and 8 p.m. on Tuesday.

"We need to hear from you if something is not working as it should. Please let us know if you encounter any problems. Your vote must be counted. There is no acceptable margin for error on Election Day. None. We are grateful to the State Election Enforcement Commission for working with us on this valuable service," Secretary of the State Denise Merrill said in an email.

"We count on the public as much as we do election workers to report problems," Michael J. Brandi, executive director and general counsel of the State Elections Enforcement Commission, said in a statement. "Anyone with knowledge of election fraud or voting rights abuses is encouraged to call to report suspected violations. We will have the phones fully staffed to answer questions, advise on complaint procedures and, if appropriate, request the assistance of state criminal or federal law enforcement authorities."

Voters who use the hotline can report concerns anonymously, but are asked to provide the town and polling place where the problem is occurring and provide as many details as possible.

The Secretary of the State's office and the State Election Enforcement Commission will also hold two separate conference calls during the day on Tuesday to share information about potential problems or complaints at the polls and coordinate the appropriate response.

Voters should go to to confirm that they are registered to vote, locate their polling places and check what type of identification to bring with them to the polls.
