Malfunction Puts Votes Before A Judge In N. Ky.

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Voting machine malfunctions at a precinct in northern Kentucky have caused elections officials to go before a judge.

Secretary of State spokesman Les Fugate says at least two machines in Kenton County weren't properly registering straight-ticket votes.

The malfunctions could impact the tightly contested state Senate race between incumbent Republican Jack Westwood of Crescent City and Democrat Kathy Groop, an activist with a public relations background.

Fugate says Kenton County Clerk of Court Rodney Eldredge opted to go before a judge to decide how to handle the problem.

Eldredge could not immediately be reached for comment Tuesday
morning.
