District Election Officer And Primary Day Hotline Established By United States Attorney’s Office

          CONCORD – United States Attorney Scott W. Murray announced the establishment of a Primary Day hotline that will be monitored throughout Primary Day on February 11, 2020, from 7 am to 8 pm.  The hotline number is 603-230-2503.  Inquiries and complaints may also be submitted through the United States Attorney’s Office web site at www.usdoj.gov/usao/nh by clicking on the “e-mail us” link.

          Assistant United States Attorney Seth R. Aframe of the New Hampshire United States Attorney’s Office will oversee complaints of election fraud and abuse of voting rights in consultation with Justice Department Headquarters in Washington, D.C.  In order to respond to these complaints and address any abuse of voting rights, AUSA Aframe will be on duty while the polls are open.

          United States Attorney 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, D.C. at 1-800-253-3931.
