FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Kentucky attorney general’s Election Fraud Hotline has closed for the day after receiving a total of 16 calls during primary election voting.

The attorney general’s office reported the hotline opened at 6 a.m. EDT Tuesday as the first voters headed to the polls and closed at 7 p.m., when polls closed in the western half of the state.

Five of the calls came from Jefferson County, including four procedural questions and one legal question. Two calls were fielded from Christian County, with one media call and one procedural question. Producing one question each were Franklin, Johnson, Knox, McCreary, Meade, Mercer, Nelson, Oldham and Robertson counties.

The Meade County question concerned electioneering near the polls, while the others were procedural or legal questions or matters concerning an election official or voting machine.
