Vote Counting Continues in Kanawha after Issues Come To Light


On this West Virginia Morning, a vote tabulation issue in Kanawha County is nearing resolution and it appears it will not affect the outcome of two statehouse races in question. As Dave Mistich reports, election officials there had to reconcile more than 1,700 unaccounted for ballots across 20 voting precincts.

Also on today’s show, when a worker is killed on the job in Kentucky, a state agency is supposed to find out what happened. But a review of state records and a recent scathing federal report show that agency is not properly investigating workplace fatalities. These shortcomings leave workers at risk and leave families with unanswered questions.

Jeff Young of the Ohio Valley ReSource has the story of one such family.
