Nearly all Alabama voter registrars are GOP

The Gadsden Times reports: For the first time, all three appointing authorities for county voter registrars are Republicans, but some Democrat holdovers were reappointed this year by new GOP Agriculture Commissioner John McMillan.

Gov. Robert Bentley, State Auditor Sam Shaw and McMillan, all Republicans, made board of registrar appointments this year in 66 counties. The governor, auditor and agriculture commissioner each have one appointment.

Jefferson County?s voter registrars are appointed by the county commission. ...

Republican Party Chairman Bill Armistead reacted strongly to the appointment of some Democratic holdovers.

I think they should be all Republicans, Armistead said. I dont know who the holdovers were, but if they were not declared Republicans or didnt switch, I think it was a mistake. -- Read the whole story --> Registrars set in 66 of 67 state counties; GOP chairman wants all to be Republican | GadsdenTimes.com
