Kentucky improperly deactivated 150,000 voters weeks before key election – Alternet.org
More than 150,000 Kentucky voters were improperly placed on an “inactive list” in a closed-door meeting less than two months before the state’s gubernatorial election, the state’s Democratic Party said on Monday.
Democratic chairman Ben Self said in a letter to the state’s Board of Elections that the board must reactivate the registrations after the move jeopardized their right to vote in the upcoming election for governor, attorney general and other statewide offices. According to an internal Democratic poll, Republican Gov. Matt Bevin and other statewide Republican candidates are trailing in their races.
