Over Two Hundred Complaints Received By Vote Fraud Hotline

Out of 235 complaints to the vote fraud hotline, the attorney general's office says 17 were accusations of vote buying and selling. Officials say 30 percent of those complaints were about voting machines. Other complaints included electioneering with 300 feet of the polls, election officials, legal issues, and voting procedures.

"There seems to be less substance of allegations after this general election than there were after the primary," Secretary of State Trey Grayson said.

Ten people have been charged with vote buying in the May Primary in Bath County, including the judge executive.

An investigation is also ongoing for vote buying in Clay County.
