In our top story at five... tens of thousands of kentucky voters could head to the polls in november.... only to find they can't vote... because they have been placed on an "inactive voters" list.

The kentucky democratic party is demanding the state board of election, re-activate those voters.

At their meeting today... the board members took no action.

Abc 36's alexus larson talked with the secretary of state about what comes next.

"secretary of state grimes says there's about 175,000 names on the voter inactive list.

Grimes says it's not right and she's prepared to fight against the state board of elections if they don't fix it."

Secretary of state grimes says this list is unlawful.

She says that's because most people who are on list don't even know they're on it.

If you haven't voted in the last two federal elections.... you are placed on the list.

But... grimes says when she researched the list... she found there are people on it who have voted recently.

"these are not people who's registration should be questioned.

These are not people who should be walking down a path towards deactivating their registration."

The kentucky democratic party has threatened to take legal action if the voters are not re-activated.

Grimes says she ready to do the same.
