Election day is 6am-6pm local time, Tuesday, 3 Nov 2015
BR> By Leland Hulbert, Deputy Communications Director
Office of Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway

As voters prepare to head to the polls next Tuesday, Attorney General Jack Conway reminds Kentuckians that they can help his office combat vote fraud by utilizing his Election Fraud Hotline. Kentuckians who witness election irregularities or possible election law violations are encouraged to call the Election Fraud Hotline at 800-328-VOTE (800-328-8683).


"Our Election Fraud Hotline is an important tool in the fight to ensure honest and fair elections for all Kentuckians," Attorney General Conway said. "I want to encourage voters to be our eyes and ears in the polling places and report any election irregularities to our hotline."

The Attorney General's Election Fraud Hotline is open throughout the year during normal business hours and from 6am-7pmET, on Election Day. The hotline received 16 calls from more 50 counties during the 2015 Primary Election and 226 calls from 50 counties during the 2014 General Election.

Investigators from the Attorney General's Office will also be patrolling precincts and polling places across the Commonwealth during next Tuesday's general election. General Conway's office has also worked closely with the Secretary of State's Office, United States Attorney's offices in Eastern and Western Kentucky and other members of the Kentucky Election Integrity Task Force to protect voters and the integrity of the election.

By law, the Office of the Attorney General has jurisdiction to investigate and prosecute election law violations. The office is also required by statute to conduct post-election audits in six randomly drawn counties within 20 days of the election.

The Attorney General's Office will send hotline updates to the media at 10:30amET, 3:30pmET and at 7:30pmET, after the polls close.

Members of the news media covering the election are reminded that they may be in the voting room for the limited purpose of filming the voting process. However, as per OAG 88-76, the media may not conduct interviews with voters inside the voting room, record the identity of voters, or disrupt the voting process. These violations are Class A misdemeanors under KRS 117.236.
