Hotline to be open on Tuesday from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.
FRANKFORT, Ky. (Oct. 29, 2014) — During Election Day on Tuesday Kentuckians are encouraged to report suspected vote fraud to the Election Fraud Hotline at (800) 328-8683, said Attorney General Jack Conway.
“Our Election Fraud Hotline is an important tool in the fight to ensure honest and fair elections for all Kentuckians,” Conway said. “I want to encourage voters to be our eyes and ears in the polling places and report any election irregularities to our hotline.”
The Attorney General’s 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 205 calls from more than 60 counties during the 2014 Primary Election and 183 calls from nearly 60 counties during the 2012 General Election.
Investigators from the Office of the Attorney General will also be patrolling precincts and polling places on Tuesday.
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.
