Alabama Counties with more Registered voters than eligible adults

From the Birmingham News:

MONTGOMERY - Six Alabama counties have more people on their voting rolls than they do people of voting age, according to voter registration numbers and U.S. Census Bureau estimates.

The curious statistic could be the result of a surge in new registrations added to voter rolls that have not been purged of people who moved, said local election officials. But the state's top elections chief said Thursday she's concerned that bloated rolls could leave opportunity for Election Day fraud. . . .


Note that this election official relates false registrations to election day fraud. With the ACORN scandal so many people are trying to emphasize that those are only registration problems.

Thanks to Joey Rich.

Oops, your title has a misspelling. Shouldn't that be counties not countries?

Depending on where you're from, it may seem like another country. ;-)

(BTW, I can say that...I'm from Alabama.) :-D
