Stealing the vote

 A federal judge denied an effort to expand the number of polling places in Kentucky.

There will be fewer than 200 polling places, down from 3,700 in a typical election year.

Most of the state's 120 counties will have just one polling location. 

That includes the most populous county, Jefferson, home to Louisville. About 1 in 5 residents in the county is African American, the largest black population in the state. Jefferson County has a population of roughly 767,000 and will have just one polling location. It is 54 miles long with poor public transit so how will people get to vote?
