Police Tape At Polling Place Sparks Calls

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - There have been few early problems reported on this election day in Kentucky.

A spokesman for the Secretary of State's office says one unusual incident was reported by several callers.

Spokesman Les Fugate says people complained Oak Grove Mayor Dan Potter put up yellow police tape around City Hall, blocking access to rest rooms, telephones and much of the building, except for the polling location.

Fugate says the office has never heard of such an incident before and asks who would want to vote at something that looks like a crime scene. He says it could be considered a form of voter intimidation.

Calls to Potter were not immediately returned.
