LOUISVILLE, KY (WDRB) -- Rosaline Cleveland-Coleman has voted each time she's been eligible. And she was eager to vote in Tuesday's primary.
But when she went to cast her vote, the names she thought would appear on her ballot did not. Her district was one of several redistricted when the Metro Council redrew its boundaries last fall based on the 2010 census. Tuesday's primary marked the first time the new boundaries were tested.
It is also the first time an election was held in the district since the resignation last fall of embattled councilwoman Dr. Judy Green. She resigned after she was charged with two ethics violations for mishandling city grant money.
Cleveland-Coleman lives on a section of Cecil Avenue in west Louisville that is now in Council District 5. To her surprise, her neighors across the street remain in Council District 1.
"That's crazy. We're right across the street," said Deborinia Ford, a 20-year old voter who lives across from Cleveland-Coleman.
Coleman says she was eager to vote because last week's violence has drawn a lot of attention to District 1 and she was eager to make her voice heard.
"And now it's a mess because there's going to be a lot of people upset because they couldn't vote for who they wanted to vote for and it's really bad," she said. "District 1 council seat was a very important seat. Across the street there's vacant houses, there's crime, rampant crime."
Attica Scott, D - District 1, easily won the Democratic primary Tuesday over four other opponents. She was first appointed to the seat last fall after Green's resignation.
