Frankfort, KY – The Kentucky attorney general's voter fraud hotline is receiving a steady stream of complaints on this primary Election Day. Shelley Johnson with the AG's office says the voter fraud hotline has already received almost 60 complaints, including eight from Clay County. She says each call will be carefully evaluated. Investigators are also in the field. "Looking for any election irregularities. We'll be following up on that information, taking notes. We're also conducting unannounced spot checks at random polling places to check for election law violations."
Johnson says there have been complaints about alleged vote buying, electioneering within 300 feet of the polls, election officials and exit polling.
