COVINGTON, Ky. (WKRC) — A federal judge struck down Kentucky’s electioneering law. Late Tuesday afternoon, Oct. 14, Judge William O’Bertelsman struck down Kentucky’s law that forbid people to post campaign signs within 300 feet of a polling place. A Cold Spring man challenged the law because he wanted to post signs of candidates he supports in the windows of his business. He was forbidden to do so because it was too close to a polling location. Bertelsman ruled the state law violated the first and 14th amendments to the Constitution. He issued a permanent injunction blocking the law’s enforcement.
