The Kentucky Attorney General’s Office reports 205 calls to its election fraud hotline Tuesday during the primary. Instances of vote buying and selling were reported in several counties. The bulk of the complaints concern instances of alleged election fraud and procedural questions related to voting.
With an expected 30 percent (or less) voter turnout in tomorrow's primary elections, about 930,000 Kentuckians will take to the polls to determine which candidates will appear on the ballot during this fall's general election.
Most Kentucky counties are now accepting absentee ballots for the upcoming May primary. Those unable to make it to the polls in person may vote in this manner. Citizens can mail in or deliver their ballot to their local clerk’s office.
