WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - U.S. Attorney Barry Grissom says federal prosecutors in Kansas will be on duty throughout Tuesday's polling hours to field complaints of election fraud and voting rights violations.

Grissom says anyone with evidence of electoral corruption or voting rights abuses should call his office immediately at 785-295-2850.

The FBI's regional office in Kansas City, Mo., was also making agents available Tuesday to take reports of voter suppression or election abuses. The FBI can be reached at 816-512-8200.

Kansas Secretary of State Kris Kobach's office also monitors the election and takes complaints.

In Wichita, the group KanVote was placing volunteers at polling places to observe implementation of Kansas voter ID laws in low-income neighborhoods.
