Frankfort, KY – Their names won't appear on the ballot, but so far, at least six people have qualified to be write-in candidates for president in Kentucky's November 4th election.
Among them are conservative Alan Keyes of Maryland and Keith Judd, a federal prison inmate in Beaumont, Texas.
At least three Kentuckians have qualified as write-ins, including Billy Mills of Morgantown, Shelley Upchurch of Ft. Thomas and Leonard Habermehl of Frankfort.

Frankfort, KY – Kentucky's new voter registration numbers are out, and they're record-setting.
Four years ago, there were nearly 2.8 million registered voters in Kentucky. That rose to more than 2.8 million for the May primary.
But even that number has now been eclipsed, said Les Fugate, of the Secretary of State's office.
"We have a record number of registered voters who will be able to participate in this fall's election, with 2.9 million voters," said Fugate.

Louisville, KY – Voters in 34 Kentucky counties will cast ballots using a digital scanning device, according to the Kentucky Secretary of State's office.
Secretary of State Spokesperson Les Fugate says some counties asked for the new devices amid voter concerns about problems that occurred in Florida during the 2000 presidential election.
There have never been any major issues with the old machines in Kentucky.
Fugate says the new system is similar to what has been used in Jefferson County for the last 20 years.
