Officials Ask Public Help In Fighting Voter Fraud

FRANKFORT (AP) - Investigators from the Kentucky attorney general's office will be out Tuesday patrolling precincts and polling places to keep the primary election free of voter fraud.

But Attorney General Jack Conway and Secretary of State Elaine Walker say citizens are also expected to watch for any irregularities and report them to the election fraud hotline at (800) 328-8683.

During last year's primary election, the election fraud hotline received 116 calls from 43 counties.

Representatives from Conway's and Walker's office have been meeting recently as part of the Kentucky Election Integrity Task Force, which also includes members from the Kentucky State Police, Kentucky's U.S. attorney's offices and the Kentucky Board of Elections.
