JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) –   Prosecuting Attorney Scott Ellington has asked a state police investigator to look into suspected absentee ballot fraud in one Region 8 county.

In a letter released by Scott Ellington's office, Ellington said although he has not yet received a file from the Mississippi County election commission, he wants the state police to look into the matter.

Ellington said because he was a candidate on the ballot, we will ask the Arkansas Prosecutor Coordinator to appoint a special prosecutor.
