State sets up hotline to report fraud, problems at polls
Posted By Cara Matthews On November 1, 2010 (10:47 am) In Uncategorized
The state Comptroller’s Office set up a hotline to take calls tomorrow from people having trouble at the polls. Voters who have problems including privacy issues, technical difficulties, trouble reading ballots and late opening of polling sites should call Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli’s office-which issued a report on problems with New York City voting
and another on problems in other counties
in the primary-to report the issue. The number is 888-672-4555.
“If voters have problems casting their ballots on Election Day, we want to know about it,” DiNapoli said. “No one should be disenfranchised or worry that their privacy will be compromised when voting. My office identified widespread problems with Primary Day voting. The boards of elections, particularly in New York City, should have fixed the problems to ensure they are not repeated on Tuesday. If these problems persist, my office will investigate why.”
DiNapoli’s reports about primary day made recommendations for boards of election to prevent problems on Election Day. This is the first year the state’s new system of paper ballots and scanners is in effect statewide and no mechanical-lever machines will be used.
