Some Saying Kentucky's Voting System Needs Changes

Some candidates say Kentucky's system for choosing what party takes the top spot on the ballot needs to be changed.

The candidates are listed on the ballot according to which party carried the state in the last presidential election. In this month's elections, Republicans were listed first on the ballot. Some experts and candidates say the system is unfair.

A study published in 2004 even suggests that ballot order could have been a factor in the 2000 Presidential Election.
