Hours extended on election day
FRANKFORT, Ky. (Oct. 26, 2016) — 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 on Nov. 8, said Attorney General Andy Beshear.
Kentuckians can report any voting abnormalities at 800-328-VOTE or 800-328-8683.
“Each voter has the right to cast his or her ballot free of interference and intimidation, and my office is here to protect that right,” Beshear said. “I encourage anyone with possible information about violations of federal voting rights laws to call the Election Fraud Hotline. Each and every report made will be promptly investigated to ensure a fair and honest election in Kentucky.”
By law, the Office of the Attorney General has jurisdiction to investigate and prosecute election law violations.
In addition to the hotline, investigators from the Attorney General’s Office may patrol precincts and polling places across the Commonwealth on Election Day in order to respond immediately to complaints.
The Attorney General’s Office is required by statute to conduct postelection audits in six randomly drawn counties within 20 days of the election.
