Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway says the Election Fraud Hotline received 183 calls from nearly 60 counties on Election Day. Conway says most of the calls were questions concerning procedural issues and voting machines.

Conway says his office received 11 calls alleging vote buying or selling prior to the vote and four more on Tuesday. The State Board of Elections also received 135 questions regarding the election, including procedural issues, electioneering complaints and possible vote fraud and vote buying. State law requires Conway's office to randomly select six counties for a postelection audit.
