Six Ky. Counties To Face Post-Election Audits

Jun 9, 2014

Attorney General Jack Conway will take a closer look at election results in six Kentucky counties for audits following the May 20 primary elections.

State law requires the attorney general to randomly select six counties for an audit within 20 days of each election. Conway selected Meade, Allen, Clark, Warren, Breathitt and Russell counties during a public drawing on Monday.

The state election fraud hotline received 205 calls for the May 20 primary elections. Fifteen calls came from Breathitt County, the most of any county in the state.

Conway noted auditors did not find anything wrong with the six counties audited in the previous election. But he said tips to the election hotline resulted in the conviction of three people in Floyd County.
