Report on Attorney General's Primary Election Day Operations

Concord, NH – Attorney General Gordon J. MacDonald announces the results of the Attorney General's Primary Election Day Operations which took place on Tuesday, September 8, 2020.

A team of approximately 45 attorneys, investigators, and staff from the Attorney General's Office were deployed and inspected approximately 302 of New Hampshire's 309 polling places. Each inspector completed a detailed checklist after working with local election officials to resolve any issues that may have been identified.

The Attorney General's Election Hotline received approximately 125 calls and emails during the Primary Election Day with more than 110 issues raised. Each call or email was assigned to an attorney for a response regarding the issue identified. The vast majority of issues were resolved on Tuesday by working directly with local election officials or voters. Some of the issues require follow up after the Election. Those matters will be handled by the Election Law Unit.

The Attorney General's State Primary Election Day Operations were led by Assistant Attorney General Nicholas Chong Yen, Chief Investigator Richard Tracy, and Paralegal Jill Tekin of the Election Law Unit as well as Associate Attorney General Anne Edwards.
