Democrats to Monitor Polls

Kentucky Democrats are planning on sending election "challengers" to precincts throughout the state as a way to ensure the vote isn't suppressed.

Democrats plan to track whether registered voters have cast ballots and use that information to try to get them to the polls.

Under state law, political parties may field challengers to contest whether a prospective voter is eligible.

Robert Keller, Kentucky Democratic party spokesman, says the challengers are going to be at the polls acting as observers and won't challenge eligibility.

Kentucky GOP Chairman Steve Robertson says Republicans are not fielding election challengers this year.

According to state law, a challenger must be registered in the county where they're positioned.
