Compromise On Purged Voters

Frankfort, KY – Officials have reached a compromise that will allow any Kentuckians who were inappropriately removed from state voter rolls to cast ballots in Tuesday's primary election.
Frankfort County Circuit Judge William Graham approved the remedy at a hearing on Monday.
Under the compromise, affected voters would need only to show an identification card or other proof of residency.
The Kentucky Secretary of State's office last month purged more than 8,000 voters because they were also registered in either Tennessee or South Carolina.
Attorney General Greg Stumbo's office had asked for an injunction before the primary election
