Voter Complaint Hotline Ready For Primary
(2008-02-04)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - Alabama voters with election law questions or complaints related to tomorrow's primary voting can contact the state attorney general's office hotline: 1-800-831-8814.

An attorney specializing in election law will take calls today through Wednesday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.

In a statement, Attorney General Troy King says his office will answer questions, examine any allegations of election fraud, and actively investigate any legitimate complaints of wrongdoing in the presidential primary election.

King said the law requires that an absentee ballot must be witnessed by two adults or be notarized in order to be counted as a legal ballot.

It's a felony to willfully alter the vote on someone else's absentee ballot, to willfully cast more than one absentee ballot in the same election, to willfully vote in someone else's name or falsify absentee ballot documents, or to solicit or encourage illegal absentee voting activities.

A conviction could bring one to two years in prison or a fine of $500 to $2,000, or both.
