Columbus, Ohio (AP) Ohio's elections chief says she won't allow poll workers to take voting machines home for safekeeping in the days before the November presidential election.

Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner said Tuesday that the practice known as “sleepovers” is an unacceptable security risk.

Many local election officials have argued that the practice makes it easier to transport machines to polling sites. Otherwise, they would have to hire moving companies to distribute the machines at a cost of thousands of dollars.

Brunner says federal money will reimburse counties for the cost.
