HARTFORD — Connecticut and federal officials are announcing a hotline for anybody to report rights abuses or fraud at the polls on Election Day.

Workers from the Connecticut State Elections Enforcement Commission will staff the hotline during the voting hours on Tuesday.

The office of Connecticut’s top federal prosecutor says its representatives and the FBI will be in touch with state officials to receive any complaints. An assistant U.S. attorney, Susan Wines, has been appointed to oversee the district’s handling of complaints of fraud and rights abuses.

The hotline number is 1-866-733-2463.

Citizens can also send an email to elections@ct.gov to communicate with the SEEC and the Secretary of the State’s office on Election Day.
