As required by Kentucky law, 12 counties are to be selected at random following an election for a post-election audit by the Kentucky Attorney General’s Office.
Yesterday, nearby Monroe and Metcalfe counties were among the 12 counties randomly chosen by Attorney General Daniel Cameron for a post-election audit.
The Attorney General’s office will complete the audits on hand and present findings to a grand jury as well as each county’s chief circuit judge in the meantime.
The attorney general will be looking for any election law violations, checking election forms, and interviewing county officials. The audit could take several months as officials look for any wrongdoing or irregularities from the election process in these 12 counties.
