Kenton Co. Orders 108 Voting Machines Shut Down (KY)
WLWT News 5. November 4, 2008.

COVINGTON More than 100 voting machines in Kenton County have been shut down on a judge's order.

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

The malfunctions could affect 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 said Kenton County Clerk of Court Rodney Eldredge opted to go before a judge to decide how to handle the problem.

Shortly before 11 a.m., the judge ordered that 108 eSlate machines be turned off.

Eldridge said a check of the machines showed the votes were being recorded, but not displayed to the voters. He said the votes cast before the shutdown will be counted. Other machines are available at the precincts involved.
