6:04 EVENING UPDATE: Steward is appealing election decision


Chris Steward has decided to appeal Circuit Judge Phillip Patton's decision to uphold the results of the May 20 election in the Democratic race for Barren County judge-executive.

A copy of the notice of appeal to was filed Friday in Barren Circuit Court.

Steward's attorney, Matt Baker, said he would expect the Kentucky Court of Appeals to establish an abbreviated schedule so the case can move along fairly quickly.

In that race, Micheal Hale received 1,643 votes, Bud Tarry got 1,640 and Steward received 1,627. Steward asked for a recount of mail-in absentee ballots, which yielded no different results, and contested the election, challenging the rejection of 27 mail-in ballots that he believed should be counted. After a court trial, Patton ruled they were all properly disqualified by the election board.
