Conway, Grimes Team Up to Prevent Voter Fraud
Kentucky officials are once again planning to crack down on voter fraud in the May 22 primary.
Attorney General Jack Conway and Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes announced their partnership on the issue Tuesday, giving details of this year's Election Integrity Task Force.
The task force investigates allegations of fraud. Some allegations come from state investigators, but many come from voters.
Conway's office operates a voter fraud hotline for residents to report potential fraud on Election Day. Concerns before the polls open can be addressed to county clerks or to Grimes through the state Board of Elections.
Representatives from the U.S. Attorney's office are also helping investigate fraud claims this year, since there are federal races on the ballot. There were six calls to Conway's hotline on primary day last year. In 2008, 59 calls were fielded.
