\LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- Voting machine malfunctions at a precinct in northern Kentucky have caused elections officials to go before a judge.
Secretary of State spokesman Les Fugate says at least two machines in Kenton County weren't properly registering straight-ticket votes.
The malfunctions could impact 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 says Kenton County Clerk of Court Rodney Eldredge opted to go before a judge to decide how to handle the problem.
Eldredge could not immediately be reached for comment Tuesday morning.
