Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway says the Election Fraud Hotline received 183 calls from nearly 60 counties on Election Day, with the bulk of the questions concerning procedural issues and voting machines.

Conway says before Tuesday's vote, the office received 11 calls alleging vote buying or selling and four more on Election Day. Clay, Knott, Knox and Wolfe counties each produced two of those calls, and the rest were from Adair, Boyd, Floyd, Harlan, Jackson, Madison and Meade counties.

Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes' office said the State Board of Elections received 135 questions from 47 counties regarding the election, including procedural issues, electioneering complaints and possible vote fraud and vote buying. The vote fraud question came from Jefferson County, and the vote buying questions were from Adair/Casey, Knox and Meade counties.

As required by law, Conway's office will randomly select six counties for a post-election audit.
