FRANKFORT, Ky. (LEX 18) — Attorney General Daniel Cameron on Monday reminded Kentuckians to report suspected election law violations and voting irregularities to the attorney general’s Election Fraud Hotline at 1-800-328-VOTE.

“While our voting process has changed for the 2020 general election, my office remains committed to doing our part to ensure the integrity of our elections by investigating and prosecuting criminal violations of election law,” Cameron said. “This election season, if Kentuckians witness suspected fraud, we urge them to join us in protecting the integrity of our election process by calling our hotline to report it.”

The hotline is active year-round and records messages 24 hours a day, seven days a week. On Nov. 3, the hotline is staffed from 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. and calls are answered live. Each tip is forwarded to prosecutors for detailed review. Campaign violations, electioneering, bribery, election fraud, and poll disruption are some examples of election fraud.

All calls to the hotline are reviewed by the Attorney General’s Office of Special Prosecutions, and complaints containing allegations of election fraud are referred to the Department of Criminal Investigations.

On Election Day, the number of complaints received by the hotline can be viewed here. The complaints are tracked by county, and the website will be updated throughout the day. Complaints received after the polls close will be added to the website the following day.

Members of the press who wish to inquire about complaints made to the hotline are encouraged to contact the attorney general’s communications office by emailing Elizabeth.Kuhn@ky.gov, rather than calling the hotline directly for information.
