CONCORD, NH – The Attorney General has issued a rundown on Election Day 2018.

A team of more than 70 attorneys, investigators, and staff from the Attorney General’s Office and Secretary of State’s Office were deployed to polling locations across the state and inspected 98 percent of New Hampshire’s polling places, visiting 302 out of 309 total locations. In the 2016 General Election, approximately 76 percent of all polling locations were visited.

The Attorney General’s Election Hotline received 185 unique calls Tuesday. The Election Hotline received 120 calls during the Primary Election on September 11, 2018. Of those, 148 calls were resolved on Tuesday and 37 require additional review to determine if further action is needed. 

Routine issues or concerns were quickly remedied with support from inspectors in the field or attorneys on the Election Hotline.

The Attorney General’s Election Day Operations were led by Assistant Attorney General Matthew Broadhead and Chief Investigator Richard Tracy of the Election Law Unit and Associate Attorney General Anne Edwards.
