Kent Police are making inquiries into a report of electoral fraud in the Thanet South seat, contested in the general election by Nigel Farage.
The UKIP leader failed to win the seat, losing out to Conservative candidate Craig Mackinlay.
Mr Farage secured 16,026 votes, with Mr Mackinlay achieving 18,838.
A spokeswoman for Kent Police said "inquires were ongoing" and the force could not say any more at this stage. 'Postal vote problems'
The result was not declared at the count at Margate's Winter Gardens until about 10.35 GMT on Friday, hours later than expected.
BBC reporters were told by officials at the time the delays were caused by the sheer volume of ballot papers and problems verifying the postal vote.
Turnout was 69%, up from 65% in 2010.

Ballots boxes 2 1/2 hrs late in arriving, not secured with official seals, etc.
Dead Democrats in Britain? Who knew!
Incredible to even contemplate, but how sweet if Garage made it in after exposure of Conservative (read, GOPe) fraud, and after he had offered his UKIP resignation due to his perceived loss.
Except this sounds like the equivalent of their GOPe to defeat their equivalent of a TEA Party conservative . . .
Where was Obama’s chief fraudster David Axelrod? This smacks of the election of Al FGranken as US Senator when ballot boxes with 100% Franken votes just showed up to be counted.
Postal fraud is a long standing known problem in the UK.
Even Galloway is now claiming it against Labour -
With others talking about it -
“Labour candidate arrested” http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/election-candidate-arrested-postal-vote-5602527
ISIS George was crushed by over 28 points, he’s a sore loser.
Yes, but being a Labour idiot he knows about fraud,,,:^)
