Late this morning, the Office of the Attorney General and the Secretary of State released a joint statement about election fraud. Here’s a bit from the press release:
“The success of any election includes the vigilance of Kentucky citizens, and their reporting anything that they may find unusual concerning the election. I encourage all citizens to report any irregularities, both large and small, so that our agencies may work together to address these issues as quickly as possible. Together, we will work to ensure that every citizen can participate in a fair and honest election,” said Secretary Grayson.
The Office of the Attorney General has jurisdiction to investigate and prosecute violations of the Kentucky election laws. By law, the Attorney General administers programs to observe the conduct of elections, maintains a toll-free hotline to receive reports of election law violations, investigates any such violations, takes appropriate enforcement action and conducts post-election audits based on random selection in counties throughout Kentucky. The Election Fraud Hotline is 1-800-328-VOTE (800-328-8683). The hotline is available throughout the year during normal business hours. On November 2nd, calls will be received from 6 a.m. EST until 7 p.m. EST.
“We need Kentucky voters to be our eyes and ears on Election Day,” General Conway said. “We will have investigators from my office patrolling precincts throughout the Commonwealth, but we need citizens to join with us to ensure we have a fair election and every vote counts.”
The State Board of Elections will also be fielding calls about the election from now through Election Day. Citizens are encouraged to contact their local county clerk or the State Board of Elections with general election concerns or for election information.
Anyone know anything that needs to be reported?
