Election Officials Recertify State Voting Machines

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The State Board of Elections has re-certified the bulk of machines that will be used on Election Day in Kentucky's 120 counties.

Election officials say there have not been any reported instances of problems with the machines.

Even so, attorney general Greg Stumbo says a report found that many electronic voting machines could be susceptible to security problems. He says the potential exists for someone to hack into certain electronic voting machines and disrupt an election. He says specific software upgrades could be made to beef up security on election day.

Secretary of State Trey Grayson says there are no problems with the current voting machines, but that he and Stumbo could work together on the matter.

Voters will choose who serves as the next governor in the November 6th election. Several statewide constitutional offices also are on the ballot.

    Glad they are getting them fixed now. Fletcher has been the worst governor KY has ever had! However, Stumbo should have kept his mouth shut because now he's given Fletcher something he can used to yell about when he loses! Personally, I wouldn't care if the dog catcher was running against him, I'd vote for the dog catcher! He/She couldn't do any worst than this governor!
