LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky attorney general's office says its election fraud hotline received more than 200 calls during Tuesday's primary election.

The largest number of calls came from Breathitt County, with 15, including eight reporting vote buying. Clay County also had eight vote-buying reports. Other counties reporting vote buying were Bath, Bell, Carter, Clinton, Floyd, Harlan, Knott, Knox, Laurel, Lee, Magoffin, Morgan, Muhlenberg, Owsley, Perry, Pike and Wayne.

The attorney general's office said there were 205 calls with 210 issues reported, including about four dozen reports of vote buying.

Kentucky voters cast ballots to choose nominees for a U.S. Senate race and state legislative races. Congressional and state appellate court seats were also in play, as well as races involving local judges, council members, clerks and others.
