CINCINNATI (AP) — Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted says a total of 450 votes in the 2012 election have come under scrutiny and just more than a quarter of them were turned over to law enforcement for investigation.

Husted tells The Cincinnati Enquirer (http://cin.ci/YM2BAx ) that in the majority of the cases, there was only an "attempted effort" at fraud, and only a few voters actually cast two ballots.

He said some of the voters made an innocent mistake, unsure whether they cast an absentee ballot. He said 129 of the 450 questionable votes went to law enforcement for investigation.

There were more than 5.6 million votes cast in Ohio in the 2012 presidential election.

Hamilton County was the first in the state to prosecute voter fraud from the 2012 election.
