FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Attorney General Jack Conway says his office will randomly select six counties that will undergo a review of Tuesday's primary election.



The review, a standard procedure in Kentucky, will look for any Election Day irregularities. The counties will be selected in a random drawing within the next three weeks.



Conway said his office's election fraud hotline received 31 calls on Tuesday from 14 counties. Two of the calls were complaints about alleged vote buying. Five regarded questions about electioneering near the polls.



The attorney general said all the complaints will be thoroughly reviewed.



Investigators patrolled polling places across the state on Tuesday.
