So Far, No Major Problems with Voting Fraud in Alabama

MONTGOMERY, Ala., Nov. 7, 2006 --  The attorney general's office says there have been dozens of calls to the state's election hotline - but so far none of them have been to report fraud.

Chris Bence, who's the spokesman for Attorney General Troy King, said there had been an estimated 100 calls to the hotline by 3 p.m.

People can report information about any alleged violations or voter fraud or ask questions about election law.  Bence said the calls today have primarily been about procedural questions and from people wanting to know where to vote or what they needed to bring to the polls.

The hotline is 1-800-831-8814 and will be open until 7 p.m. Tuesday night.  It will be available until Thursday from 8 a.m.  - 5 p.m.

Elsewhere, Assistant U.S. Attorney Kent Brunson, says he has had a "couple of inquiries" today but only one complaint call which he described as more of a "personality clash than an election problem."

The complaint involved a man who was able to vote at his polling place, got his "I voted" sticker and then went to assist his mother as she voted at her polling place.  The man told Brunson he was harassed by someone he thought was a poll watcher.  According to the man, the watcher told him he had already voted and needed to leave.  The man accompanying his mother says he had already checked in with poll workers who knew what he was doing.  The man's mother was allowed to vote, he just felt harassed by the process.

Brunson says he "was a little concerned" about problems cropping up due to the many new voting machines.  However, Brunson says he has "not had one complaint on voting machines...They may have called someone, somewhere else, but they haven't called me."
