Tim Griffin, the attorney general, establishes the Election Integrity Unit



Little Rock, Arkansas – Tim Griffin, the attorney general of Arkansas, formed the Election Integrity Unit on Monday under the Special Investigations Division of his office.

Wayne Bewley, the chief of investigations, will lead the division, according to a news release.

Griffin said the following in his announcement:

“Public confidence in our elections is tied directly to public confidence in government. Election integrity has always been a priority for me throughout my time in public office,” Griffin said. “Therefore, as Attorney General I have established an Election Integrity Unit. This unit will operate using existing personnel and funding and will require no additional resources. As director of the unit, Chief Bewley will work closely with Senior Assistant Attorney General and Chief Prosecutor Ryan Cooper to ensure that all credible leads are investigated, including those received through our existing Election Law Hotline, also under the supervision of the Election Integrity Unit.”

Griffin invites Arkansans to call his office’s Election Law Hotline at (833) 995-8683 if they wish to register a complaint about alleged election law breaches.
