Recently, Attorney General Greg Stumbo called on the Kentucky Secretary of State’s Office to review voting equipment citing “serious flaws” in similar equipment in California.

“Any voting systems subject to manipulation and corruption should be reexamined and decertified,” Stumbo said in a press release.  “Faulty electronic voting systems jeopardize the public’s confidence in Kentucky’s elections.” The attorney general said his concerns are based on “serious security flaws identified by experts in California, which led to emergency decertification of the voting machines by California.”

“We have a printed tally from machines, that shows and undertotal and an overtotal, which creates a paper trail,” said Trigg Clerk Wanda Thomas. She said that each machine had a record of the number of voters registered to vote in that precinct, and would compare the numbers against the actual votes cast. Discrepancies such as more votes than registered voters would be observed at once.
