LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky officials reported few problems
and no fraud complaints during the primary for party nominations

Attorney General spokeswoman Shelley Catherine Johnson said the
election fraud hotline received six phone calls on Tuesday. Johnson
said three of the calls were procedural, two were for general
election complaints and one was a media call.
Secretary of State spokeswoman Lindsay Zoeller said Tuesday
evening that there had been no significant problems.
During the 2010 primary election, the election fraud hotline
received 116 calls from 43 counties.
