NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Experience a problem at the polls? Call Connecticut’s revived Election Day hotline to report it.
The hotline will be reactivated on Tuesday, Connecticut Secretary of State Stephanie Thomas announced Monday. The hotline will be available from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Anyone who sees or suspects voter intimidation, wrongdoing or “voting irregularities” is asked to call the hotline. It can be reached at (866) 733-2463 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Connecticut State Elections Enforcement Commission staffs the hotline, which was first launched in 2010.
Thomas said on Tuesday that the office received more calls for the general election than for the primaries.
“So far elections across the state are rolling out without incident,” she said. “We’ve had a couple of calls into the hotline, but happily all of the issues were resolved.”
Thomas hopes it becomes more of a resource and that voters memorize the number.
“We made an extra effort to get that tip line out to all the news media, to various stakeholder groups,” she said. “I hope it becomes second nature and people memorize that number.”
