“Kentucky Democrats sue state for labeling 175,000 voters ‘inactive’ before election”

Lexington Herald-Leader:

The Kentucky Democratic Party sued the State Board of Elections Thursday, claiming it unlawfully placed 175,000 registered voters on an “inactive” list that might infringe on their right to vote.
The lawsuit filed in Franklin Circuit Court followed unsuccessful discussions between the two sides.
“After weeks of conversations with the State Board of Elections staff that raised more questions than it provided answers, we determined that we had no choice but to file this lawsuit in order to protect Kentucky voters from facing unfair burdens at the polls,” Kentucky Democratic Party Chairman Ben Self said in a statement.
