Election Fraud Hotline Open During Tuesday's Primary

comm of ky 300FRANKFORT, Ky. (5/19/14) — As voters prepare to head to the polls Tuesday, Attorney General Jack Conway reminds Kentuckians that they can help his office combat vote fraud by utilizing his Election Fraud Hotline. 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,” General 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 31 calls from 14 counties during the 2012 Primary Election and 183 calls from 57 counties during the 2012 General Election.

Investigators from the Office of the Attorney General will also be patrolling precincts and polling places across the Commonwealth during Tuesday’s primary. General Conway’s office has also worked closely with the Secretary of State’s Office, United States Attorney’s offices in Eastern and Western Kentucky and other members of the Kentucky Election Integrity Task Force to protect the integrity of the 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 30 days of the election.

The Attorney General’s Office will send hotline updates to the media at 10:30 a.m., 3:00 p.m. and at 7:30 p.m., after the polls close.

Members of the news media covering the election are reminded that they may be in the voting room for the limited purpose of filming the voting process.  However, as per OAG 88-76, the media may not conduct interviews with voters inside the voting room, record the identity of voters, or disrupt the voting process, a class A misdemeanor. See KRS 117.236.
