Voter Complaint Hotline implemented to help locals on Election D - WRBL

Voter Complaint Hotline implemented to help locals on Election Day

Posted: Updated:
A new Voter Complaint Hotline is designed to handle any questions Columbus voters might have.

In years past, if you had a problem on Election Day, you had to make a call to Atlanta to complain. Officials at the Secretary of State's office would then direct the message to our local elections office, but not anymore.

Elections Director Nancy Boren says the suggestion to localize came from a voter, and now the new hotline can answer all your questions. She says voters most often complain about having to choose a party in a primary election like this one.

She explains, "Say I wanted to vote for governor on the Democratic side, and I wanted to vote for US Senate on the Republican side, having voters understand that they can't do this in the primary, but they will be able to vote for the winners, whoever they want to vote for, either party, in November."

You can also ask where to vote if you don't know your local polling place, or find out at www.columbusga.org/elections.

Four phone numbers make up the hotline. They are:
(706) 225-3602
(706) 225-3605
(706) 225-3606
(706) 225-3608
