FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – As voters prepare to head to the polls next Tuesday, they’re reminded that the Election Fraud Hotline will be available.
Kentuckians who witness election irregularities or possible election law violations are encouraged to call 800-328-VOTE (800-328-8683). The Election Fraud Hotline is open throughout the year during normal business hours and from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. (EST) on Election Day. The hotline received 16 calls from more 50 counties during the 2015 Primary Election and 226 calls from 50 counties during the 2014 General Election.
Investigators from the Attorney General’s Office will also be patrolling precincts and polling places across the Commonwealth during next Tuesday’s general election. By law, the Office of the Attorney General has jurisdiction to investigate and prosecute election law violations. The office is also required by statute to conduct post-election audits in six randomly drawn counties within 20 days of the election.
