INDIANAPOLIS, May 4 (UPI) -- Indiana officials said a typo caused residents calling a voter information hotline number distributed in a news release to be connected with a phone sex line.

The Indiana Secretary of State's office said the number given for the Hoosier Voter Hotline in Monday's news release was the incorrect number and caused callers to be connected with a recording telling them to dial a second number for "fun, stimulating conversation," The (Elkhart) Truth reported Wednesday.

A.J. Feeney-Ruiz, a Secretary of State spokesman, said the error was corrected within 35 minutes of the news release being sent out.

"This is my mistake. I actually wrote down the wrong number," Feeney-Ruiz said. "Human error."
