MERRIMACK, N.H. (AP) - The Merrimack Town Council has apologized to residents over long lines for presidential primary voting.

The Nashua Telegraph reports that the council issued the apology at their meeting last week.

Council Chairwoman Nancy Harrington says the town accepted responsibility for a traffic problem on Feb. 9 that caused lines more than a mile long to get to the town’s single polling place, the local high school. Officials previously blamed the long line of cars on a new traffic pattern.

Harrington says the council has directed election officials and the police department to consider ways to mitigate traffic problems in future elections.
