The setting of a vote for the seat held by the late U.S. Sen. Robert C. Byrd became doubtful after it sat idle Sunday, according to a report by the Charleston Gazette.

Neither chamber of the West Virginia legislature acted on either version of the proposal that would put Byrd's seat on the Nov. 2 ballot following a special Aug. 28 primary.

One version awaits a final vote in the House of Delegates. The other has passed both chambers, but with competing amendments that require a joint conference committee to resolve.

West Virginia's elections chief, Secretary of State Natalie Tennant said her office could keep the tight timetable set out in either version — if it wins final passage today. "If they can get it passed tomorrow, we will be OK," she said Sunday.
