Dr. Chris Steward has filed an appeal in the case involving the 27 absentee ballots that were rejected during the May 20th  Primary.  I asked Steward what he hoped to accomplish through the appeal:

Initially Steward told WCLU News that he did not plan to appeal, but said he had a change of heart.  Steward says he was encouraged by several supporters to follow this through to the Kentucky Court of Appeals.  And that is just what he and his attorney Matt Baker intend to do.  Steward says his case will be moved through the court system at a much faster than normal pace, due to the upcoming November general election.  He does expect to receive a ruling in the next couple of weeks.

 

Steward and his attorney have been researching case law involving elections:

Steward feels that individuals who have to vote absentee are actually unable to vote and are already at somewhat of a disadvantage.  He says filling out the ballot itself is simple, it is the process the voter has to go through with signatures, multiple envelopes and flap issues that places these folds at even more of a disadvantage.

 

Steward wanted to stress the fact that he is not mad or upset at anyone:
