Fed officials remind NJ voters of election hotline


NEWARK, N.J. (AP) — U.S. Attorney Paul J. Fishman is reminding New Jersey voters to use an Election Day hotline if they suspect voter fraud.

The U.S. attorney’s office says it is prepared to respond to reports of election irregularities, voter intimidation or any other activities that interfere with a citizen’s right to vote.

The Election Day hotline number is 1-855-291-6791. It will be active from Nov. 3 through Nov. 7. It will be staffed live on Election Day.

Fishman says The Department of Justice and federal law enforcement partners will work with county boards of election and the New Jersey attorney general’s office to respond to complaints and direct them to the appropriate authorities.
