AG's Office Gets Voter Fraud Complaints

from Kentucky Public Radio’s Tony McVeigh

The Kentucky attorney general’s voter fraud hotline is receiving a steady stream of complaints on this primary Election Day.

Clay County, which has had voter fraud problems in the past, is again drawing complaints. Shelley Johnson with the attorney’s general office says the voter fraud hotline has already received almost 60 calls statewide.

“We’ve received eight calls from Clay County,” says Johnson. “Those calls relate to six complaints on vote buying and two complaints related to an election official and electioneering within 300 feet of polls.”

Other complaints across the state relate to procedural questions, election officials, voting machines and exit polling. If you witness or suspect election irregularities, call the voter fraud hotline at 1-800-328-VOTE.
