The Connecticut Secretary of the State Denise W. Merrill and the State Elections Enforcement Commission (SEEC) are launching a primary day hotline to respond to any voter problems at the polls. The public can access the hotline by dialing 866-SEEC-INFO or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The hotline and email address will be monitored throughout the day by SEEC and the Secretary of the State’s office.
“We count on the public as much as we do election workers to report problems,” said Michael J. Brandi, executive director and general counsel of the State Elections Enforcement Commission. “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.”
