LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WAVE) - Judge Annie O’Connell has granted the disqualification of Susan Tyler Witten from the Kentucky State Representative District No. 31 race and will not be on the ballot. The ruling was decided Wednesday.

The petitioner, Susan Foster, is the democratic opponent in this years race.

Susan Tyler Witten had to have two voters sign affidavits in support of her candidacy. Those affidavits were filed on Jan. 19, 2022.

As with Witten’s address, the two voters did not have addresses within the boundaries of District 31 on the date they were filed.

According to the ruling, Witten’s address did not become apart of District 31 until the day after she filed her paperwork to run in the election.
