Mobile Dems complaining about probate judge's flagging of ballots as provisional
The Mobile Press-Register (al.com) reports: Members of the local Democratic Party are upset that an unknown number of ballots in the March primary election may not have been counted because the voters' mailing addresses did not match their addresses on file at their precincts.
One of the party members, Milton Morrow, who has run for political office in the past, has filed a formal complaint with Secretary of State Beth Chapman's office asking for a cease and desist order against Mobile County Probate Judge Don Davis.
Davis had flagged 4,000 such voters who moved from one part of Mobile County to another and ordered that their ballots be cast as "provisional ballots," which, by law, count only if the Board of Registrars can demonstrate that the voter is eligible. ...
A recent opinion from Attorney General Luther Strange's office noted that a voter cannot be blocked from casting a regular ballot when the address on the voter's registration conflicts with post office information. The opinion did not state whether Davis acted improperly, but, instead, was designed to guide future actions. -- Read the whole story --> Democratic Party upset over flagging of Mobile County ballots | al.com
