FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky counties that will undergo
post-election audits have been chosen, and they are Wolfe, Boyd,
Muhlenberg, Nelson, Estill and Clark.
By law, the state attorney general has to conduct a
post-election audit investigation into no fewer than 5 percent of
the 120 counties in Kentucky after each primary and general
election. Kentucky's primary election was May 17.
The counties are picked in a public drawing and must be done
within 20 days of the election.
The attorney general's office says the audits involve checking
election forms and interviewing county officials. The counties
picked for audit are chosen by random drawing, and their selection
doesn't imply that irregularities are suspected.
