Federal and State law enforcement agencies are looking to the general public to report improper electioneering and voter fraud on Tuesday. The state attorney general's office is taking calls at one-800-328-vote.
Attorney General Jack Conway admits the anticipated low voter participation in this primary increases the chances of fraud, "In a low turnout with a lot of local elections, that's where you tend to see a lot of the corruption problems." "That's where those of us in law enforcement who are monitoring elections need to be the most vigilant," said Conway.
