The Secretary of State’s hotline number for voters to report problems is 1-866-IN1-VOTE.

The Indiana Secretary of State’s office reports a relatively problem-free Election Day. As of mid-day the Secretary of State’s office reported receiving only a handful of calls and most of those were from people asking which precinct they needed to go to to cast their ballot.

Spokesperson AJ Feeney-Ruiz said when elections are entirely municipal, the Secretary of State’s office generally forwards any complaints it receives to local election boards. He said there have been a couple calls to report problems, but that they were taken care of almost immediately.

Marion County spokesperson Angie Nussmeyer said there have been few reported problems, describing it as a typical Election Day. There were six polling places that failed to open on time, four of which were open within a half hour. One polling place took almost two hours to open, due to communication mix ups.
