According to Judicial Watch, the organization has filed a lawsuit “against the Commonwealth of Kentucky over its failure to take reasonable steps to maintain accurate voter registration lists. The lawsuit alleges that 48 Kentucky counties have more registered voters than citizens over the age of 18. The lawsuit was filed in the United States District Court for the Eastern District of Kentucky, Central Division (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. Alison Lundergan Grimes et al.(No. 3:17-cv-00094)).”

More from the report: “Kentucky was one of 12 states to which Judicial Watch sent notice-of-violation letters this year threatening to sue because they have counties in which the number of registered voters exceeds the number of citizens of voting age. Both the National Voter Registration Act (NVRA) and the Help America Vote Act require states to take reasonable steps to maintain accurate voting rolls.”

Officials in Kentucky claimed that the lawsuit is without merit (of course). A spokesman named Bradford Queen told Fox News that “We are confident the facts will prove Kentucky is following the law and doing its due diligence to protect voters’ rights and franchise.”
