LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Polls have closed in parts of Kentucky located in the Eastern time zone.

Kentucky voters Tuesday cast ballots to choose nominees for a U.S. Senate race and state legislative races. Congressional and state appellate court seats are also in play, as well as races involving local judges, council members, clerks and others.

Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. local time. Anyone in line by 6 p.m. will be allowed to vote.

The Kentucky attorney general's office reports its election fraud hotline received 80 calls through midafternoon. The largest number of calls came from Breathitt County, where there were seven reports of vote buying out of 13 calls total. Vote buying was also reported in Bell, Clay, Harlan, Knott, Lee, Pike and Wayne counties.
