Election Fraud hotline open May 17

From 6 a.m. to 7 p.m.

FRANKFORT, Ky. (May 10, 2016) — The Attorney General’s Election Fraud hotline will be open from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. (EDT) on Election Day on May 17. Kentuckians who witness election irregularities or possible election law violations are encouraged to call the Election Fraud hotline at 800-328-VOTE (800-328-8683).

“Our Election Fraud hotline is an important tool in the fight to ensure honest and fair elections for all Kentuckians,” Attorney General Andy Beshear said. “I want to encourage voters to be our eyes and ears in the polling places and report any election irregularities to our hotline.”

Investigators from the Attorney General’s Office will also be patrolling precincts and polling places across the commonwealth during Tuesday’s primary 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 or by June 6.
