No Indictments Issued in Alleged Attempt at Voter Fraud in Daviess County

A Daviess County grand jury has declined to issue indictments stemming from two incidents in Kentucky’s June 23 primary election. 

In a statement issued on Thursday, Commonwealth’s Attorney Bruce Kuegel said the grand jury heard the findings of an investigations by the Daviess County Sheriff’s Department and took no action.  

"Because testimony before the Grand Jury cannot be divulged, I cannot comment on the evidence or testimony," Kuegel added.

Daviess County Clerk Leslie McCarty told the Messenger-Inquirer that one man appeared to vote twice by mistake while another appeared to do so intentionally.   That voter was identified as a registered Republican who cast a ballot in person and mailed his absentee ballot the same day.

McCarty says her office learned of the alleged attempt at voter fraud and did not count his vote twice.
