Kentucky's Attorney General says the election fraud hotline received a little more than 200 calls during Tuesday's primary, most of which involved allegations of vote-buying or selling.

49 calls reported some kind of vote buying. Just one was reported in western Kentucky. That was in Muhlenberg County.

We're told 43 legal questions were phoned in. 25 calls involved general election fraud complaints.

Attorney General Jack Conway says each complaint will be thoroughly reviewed for any criminal violations.
