Relay Coil Wiring

Installing a relay to operate a booster fan. The coil is 120v and I'm taking my voltage from the circuit board. On the coil, do I ground the other side or use the neutral wire?

Thanks in advance!

This rifle handles Lott ammo with no issues but binds with .458 Win Mag ammo. It seems the shorter Win Mag ammo likes to nosedive when feeding. Dealer says all checks out ok and thinks it is normal...
