Agencies Set Up Hotlines For Election Day Complaints

Nov 2, 2012

The US Attorney and state Attorney General will run special election complaint hotlines on Tuesday.  Assistant AG Richard Head says 30 lawyers and investigators will also be stationed at polling places across the state.  Typically, he says, the office fields around a hundred complaints on Election Day.

“There is no typical voter complaint," Head says with a chuckle.  "They can range anywhere from machines not working properly to signs--a wide range of issues.”

This year, a new state Voter ID law could generate more complaints.  Voters will be asked to show photo ID. Those who don’t have it will be asked to sign an affidavit.  And, voters are NOT required to have a New Hampshire driver’s license to register to vote.

The state’s election hotline is 1-866-VOTER-03 (1-866-868-3703).

The US Attorney's hotline is: 603-715-6355.
