Vote fraud complaints come from across east KY

The attorney general's office received many complaints across the region of alleged vote buying and vote fraud, including a couple of precincts in Clay County.

The calls came early in two precincts, one in Garrard and Big Creek that people may be buying votes in those areas.

Officers from the Clay County Sheriff's office responded to them.

The allegations come just months after several people were found guilty of vote fraud.

Curry says officers are working with the attorney general's office and taking every complaint seriously.

Once officials receive a call, they go to the location where the call may be and talk to whoever is around and get names and information.

In addition to the vote buying and vote fraud complaints in Clay County, the attorney general's office received complaints in Jackson, Laurel, and Perry Counties.

The attorney general's office has received complaints in Bell, Breathitt, Clay, Floyd, Jackson, Johnson, Knott, Knox, Laurel, Lee, Leslie, Letcher, Magoffin, Martin, Pulaski, Rockcastle, Whitley, and Wolfe Counties.

The attorney general says any complaint involving the u-s senate race is being turned over to federal authorities since he and Trey Grayson are both candidates.
